Oh Thank you for that photo! Fantastic photo to see the seed pods!
I am growing the orange, pink and red and they are at the baby stage and was wondering what the pod would look like!
I grew them all by seed.. and I have so very many growing right now and can't wait to see flowers!
I esp. like the pink.
Thanks again! Tricia

YES.. it is my favorite I have a lot of pink ones, red, and orange all in small stage.
They are VERY easy to grow by seed. I have lots of them and think they will do VERY well!
Here is a photo of the pink... the most beautiful flower to me:)

Oh my goodness, these are just stunning! I would love to try just a couple of seeds from both the pink and orange if anyone has any to spare.

I am all out of the pink POB seeds because I got carried away and planted them all...

I got babies... here is a photo I just took of some of them. I will have seeds shortly which are so easy to germ. I have a way to get almost 100 percent.

I had two of the red and orange plants grow in the landscape at our office. I am in the Orlando, FL area. They have gone from 4" and 10" to 3 1/2" and 5' tall in one summer. The tall one just bloomed. I need to know how to control them as far as pruning and establishing them. Do we cut back on growth on edges to thicken up main stems? Also I noted from other comments that the roots get tight and can hurt paving. Should these be in pots or in soil away from paving?
