I planted 3 this summer and they did very well and I was able to save seeds. When I first planted, I had an issue with squirrels picking the flowers off, however I fenced them and after a time the squirrels gave up.

I started this from seed and it did quite well in my acidic soil even though this was an awfully dry year. I plan to pot up some plants before hard frost as I have read that it makes a nice houseplant, blooming in a sunny winter window, for those of us in colder climates. It really flowered well for a first year plant, and I'm hopeful that I can keep it going. I am actually surprised at how tough this plant is. We have already had a couple of pretty good frosts that zapped the zinnias, marigolds, & heliotrope, but this is still looking great.
