It was OKI grew these from seed, and didn't have a problem germinating indoors. The plants just looked like long grass for an entire year. This spring I was surprised at the tall blooms, but the color was kinda bland. It was cool looking, in an alien plant kind of way, but it didn't last that long. I moved them to the "back" garden....

tritomaVery dissapointed, I bought 2 seed packets. Nothing ever came up. No where on the packet does it say to refridgerate 6 weeks prior to planting. No one around here seems to have any to trade or sell. It's too bad cause I really wanted them for my garden they sure look pretty in the picture. Hope others have better luck, let me know.
