These plants are easy to grow. They like to be feed, and if you buy a cell pack sometimes the roots won't develope well, after being constricted by the small cell. It is best to grow them from seed. I have done it both ways. They can't take heat and bloom during the late winter early spring. They are short lived perennials, but I treat them like annuals because after blooming, they really become stringy and weak looking. I doubt they could rebloom very well.
