This refers to whether a plant is an annual, biennial or perennial. Annuals complete their life cycles in one year; biennials produce foliage the first year and bloom and go to seed the second year; perennials can live for more than two years.
This refers to whether the seed should be sown early indoors and the seedlings transplanted outside later, or if the seed should be sown directly in the garden at the recommended planting time.

I have not had luck with this plant. I followed the directions on the seed packet and sprouts grew to about one inch tall then died. Hoping for better luck when the weather cools again.

So lovely!I planted these two years ago and was very, very pleased. They are stunning. I didn't have to do anything special (I watered in the a.m. and misted at late afternoon/early evening); I planted them and they grew. Everyone who saw them commented on them, and a couple of friends have asked what these plants are called and where they can get them. Of course, I made referrals! I've ordered some more this spring and am looking forward to planting.

No luck with theseI purchased these seeds and started indoors with my grow lights and heat mats and still had no luck. A few sprang up but were so lanky that they never amounted to anything. I really loved these and was disappointed.
