I thoroughly enjoy this article on what has become one of my very favorite plants. I started seeds last year and wasn't sure it was going to live up to it's reputation at first. The seedlings seemed to be so wimpy. But they turned out to be the most stunning plant in my garden! The drapes of flowers were so long and heavy that I needed to use some supports to keep them from just laying on the ground. As the temperatures got colder in my northern California garden they succumbed to the weather. The only thing that bothered me about the plant was the lack of bees on the flowers. The seemed to avoid it totally. I had plenty of bees on other flowers so I was concerned whether I would get any seeds. I am hoping that it does reproduce prolifically like Angela's article says otherwise I will be looking for another packet of seeds at my nursery.
