Is this plant hardy in your area? I am in zone 6b, Carlisle, PA and mine has been blooming & producing seeds, which I am collecting, for the past month or so.

Unfortunately, it's not. But we always start some from seed and as soon as last frost is past in the spring we set them out and they've always done marvelous for us. I started some white this year and they did exceptional too.
