I thought these plants in the foreground were called - Love in a Puff. I no longer have seeds for them and was going to order more. I looked up the seeds in a catalogue and the name was a climbing vine that didn't really look like what I had. My plants were not climbing vines.

Could someone help identify the plants shown here? They are self seeders. Unfortunately, the year after these pictures were taken, a garden helper dug up the plants before they had set seed. Sigh.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Elaine and Otis

Keep in mind that the many seeds produced by this plant have been flung by the exploding pods all over your yard. You will see the seedlings in the spring.

I am truly hoping so but not counting this summer, it was two summers ago that they would have produced seed. All that came up last year were pulled by my helper before the even blossomed. I will never have the heart to tell her though.


Thanks for giving me some hope.

Larkie - I will gladly switch climates with you - LOL.

Since I am in zone 5 - Supposed to be safe to plant outdoors May 24th, then anything can happen in October since it is fall and temps fluctuate. Although our weather has been weird the past few years.

Wintersowing is generally good for anything that self-seeds and this plant definitely does. Keeping my fingers crossed that I may have some stragglers this summer but I will try the balsam and see how it differs.

Take care all

By the way - Larkie - How is your golden doing? You did get a golden pup a few years back didn't you? I hope that I am remembering correctly.
