I put these in last spring as very small starters. No blossoms last summer, and I didnt know what to do in the fall so left them alone. They went through the winter fine, and now look like huge plants. I dont know if I should cut them down, or let them go.

I have grown these from seeds in zone 5. The flowers don't like if very hot and humid, and in early spring they look dismal, but it's all worth it for the wonderful colours and scent. The grey foliage is also interesting when they aren't in bloom... I'm growing more of these!
