I had grown this plant some years ago in Mesa,AZ. and very good luck with it.The cut flowers were very nice if I remember right they lasted about five days.
Has any one tried to grow these in zone 5or6 I live in central Ohio and have started some indoors in potting soil. I have 20 planted in a earth box and I have 20 planted in twenty jiffy containers. My instruction from the Holland company was 2" spacing and planting depth 2" and 3"spacing of rows.
