Am sowing seeds now (in late winter, 3rd week of Feb) in rural Northwest Tx. Am hoping that the cooler country temps will help these thrive! Have always wanted these in my garden. =)

Started plants from seed late winter under lights, they took a long time to germinate. The leaf stems are very crisp like crisp celery with out the strings and have a tendency to break when handling. Unless this really shows off before frost it will not be on my priority list next season.

One of the backbones of our 'bright' border. Self-seeds reliably, but not troublesome. (The seedlings are easily recognizable.) One of the very first things to flower. Incredibly useful.

Am planning on growing this year- will report back the results. I have read it does well in cooler areas so my GA summer might not be to its liking- lol!
There are reportedly17 (!) known species of this California native that grow near vernal ponds(seasonally flooded depressions).

This plant comes up when others are dying back in the fall, stays green all winter and blooms in the spring then politely dies back when the mainstays are coming up and flowering. It's a joy in my garden.

The poached egg plant attracts to hoverflies, which help control aphids. It also self-seeds freely after flowering.
