Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hummingbirds do like this Ipomopsis The hummingbirds did like this Ipomopsis. I started these seeds early indoors under fluorescent lights. They did bloom the same year (2013), but not all at the same time. Long bloom period. Mine were planted in morning sun, afternoon shade. Staking was necessary. The catalog photo shows the flower stalks in a vase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Plant I grew these last year, germinated some seeds indoors and some outdoors after adding a small bed. The early starts did fantastic, the others I planted to late to get much reward from but both grew well and the early starts were big & full of Beautiful Blooms !!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Seeds I planted half the seeds indoors in April. Not a single seed germinated. I planted the remainder in late May in my flower garden. Not a single seed germinated. It was a waste of five bucks. Will never order these again. I have planted several other ipomopsis varities - including native plants, and had 100% success.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the easiest These seeds were sown in situ in two spots. The ones in the very hot front yard failed to germinate, even with watering. In the back, a few did come through & suceeded in producing a few blooms though they were neither as large nor as fancy as the pack showed. I think if you take time with them, you will be rewarded but for us veg gardeners who like to eat produce, well, maybe not.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Late sowing I tried to sow these in situ as the packet instructed, but they did not germinate. Maybe because of the long, cool, wet spring we had. I planted them later in peat pots, then planted them out, and they're doing fine, only they haven't had time to bloom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Start indoors early and plant outside as early as possible. Takes a while to mature, but you will be rewarded. Glorious blooms.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ipomopsis - delightful surprise This was the first year I tried Ipomopsis, and I was delighted by the lovely flowers. I love the cottage garden effect much like my larkspur, but this one is definitely at late summer hot beauty. It takes a long time to bloom, but it's worth it.
