Seeds were sowed indoors late August for planting out in October. I should've started them in July. But once they started blooming, they were so lovely I ordered more for next year.

Abundant flowers on strong plants (will try to post a photo) with buds tinted old rose, opening to various shades of creamy yellow, pinky tan, burgundy, and peach. Faces, whiskers, and a few solids. So very different from the big box brights! But gorgeous in containers with a few yellows and burgundies I picked up to give me instant gratification while I waited for my babies to bloom.
