Gardeners' Notes:

Positive DebinSC On Sep 4, 2007, DebinSC from Georgetown, SC (Zone 8a) wrote:

The yellow really is an "echo". Just a touch. I started mine from seeds in late Dec. They sprouted in Feb., but stayed, very small for what seemed like forever. Finally in June, they began to grow taller and were in full bud in early July. Worth the wait because they've bloomed steadily for the past 8 weeks. The process of growing them from seed is agonizing, but the reward is pretty good, so I'm rating them positive.
