These seeds were some of the very first to sprout. Once transplanted into the garden, the plant grew to about the size of a large dinner plate. More and more leaves, very flat, and stayed very close to the ground, in a circle. I really thought that the plants weren't going to do anything else, and then finally, center sprouts popped up. They were flat, four sided sprouts -- almost looked like a type of cactus, and then at the tip, dividing into many flower heads. More and more sprouts from the center of the plant. A real UNIQUE plant, but a nice addition to my garden. The flowers have a strong, almost 'sweet-rotten' smell to me, so doesn't smell real nice.

Much easier to grow that I ever thought, making me wonder why I did not try this earlier. A fantastic addition to flower bouquet your the garden. The leaves can become dry and unattractive easily, especially if underwatered, which does not affect the flower at all.
