    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Lasting Beauties This was my first year to grow these flowers. I had never heard of them before and found them interesting. I had no problems with seed germination or growing the plants. The live blooms actually feel like paper. Their bright, pretty colors do not fade after cutting and drying. I've enjoyed using these flowers in wreaths and other crafts.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Eh. Germinated well. Transplanted easy. Grows tall and fast. HOWEVER: My intent was big, fragrant, colorful cut flowers for my daughter's wedding. The plants were tall but the blossoms were small, tight. No fragrance in the least. I ended up cutting them down to save water, sunlight for my other flowers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These Flowers I discovered these flowers a few years ago in IA. Since I've lived there most of my life, I wish I discovered them sooner. I don't know why more flower shops didn't cary them. Maybe because of the different look they give at different times of the day. When I first saw them they were a cute ball of a flower. "Ball", being the key word since most people look for a big bloom. But, I was looking for something different and they were listed as draught resistant and frost reisitant , and likes sun. Sounded good to a person who likes her flowers, but not very good and taking perfect care of her plants and had a sunny spot I was having trouble with flowers. These plants practically grew themselves. And the best part was the different phases they had during the day. When I saw them, they were a cute little ball. Must have been a cloudy day, because in reality, they close up at night, #or low sun#, into a ball, and open into this beautiful flower during the day. The pettles are like straw, #thus the name#, which make the points sharp. But, how often are you worried about touching the flower. So, today, I'm buying seeds, since I haven't been able to find in my area in FL, #where I moved a year ago#, and hope they work just as well.
