Thanks to Gita's generosity, I also got to grow this plant for the first time this year. I probably didn't do a good job with starting the seeds, because I got only one seedling out of the entire pack of seeds from Gita :-(

The plant is healthy and blooming very happily now. I was out of town for more than 2 weeks in the first half of this month and the plant started to bloom during my absence although the temperature was close to 100F. My heart leaped when I saw the beautiful flowers on my return.

I normally deadhead my plants religiously. Not with this one though. I am saving every seedpod this lovely plant may produce and hopefully have some to share with our fellow gardeners.

Thank you very much, Gita, for the seeds. Great article, Sally.
