Great picture, Stacey. It's very hard to capture the bloom of this plant.

Hey Mandy, Did you have a good time? Where did you end pictures?? LOL
I only had one flush of blooms on my plants. They're still looking pretty good though, no problems with the freeze even though they were only covered the second night. Hopefully they'll do well this year.

I wish to grow this plant from seed. Are the seeds located down under the peddals that dry and fall off? In the area that looks like a little plate and dries and seperates into things that look like seeds.
