I'm growing this new mpressive plant for the first time. Very easy to grow from seed, reaching to 20" and blooming in 7 weeks from sowing. I started seeds indoors and transplanted out but next year may direct seed some outdoors to compare. (Just realized I can do that this year.) Seed is from Park Seed.. The blooms are like 'Lady in Red' which I've grown for years for my hummingbird visitors. This plant however is well branched with several flower spikes blooming at once. It's already a winner and has shown outstanding performance in the summer heat.
