Gardeners' Notes:

I love this plant! Its easy to grow from a spring sowing and the round blue-ish green leaves with the pretty yellow-green flowers are very unique!

This is an easy self sowing annual that is wonderful for cut flower arrangements. It is rare here, and I'm not sure why. The biggest challenge at keeping it each year is to recognize the seedlings, and don't over cultivate in the early spring.

This intriguing, self-sowing annual blooms in a chartreuse green color that brings out the colors of other flowers, especially bright ones. It's also nice for flower arranging. It's easy to grow from seed -- direct sow in mid spring.
