I love the color of this annual especially in a hanging basket with other brightly colored flowers appropriate for shade or partial shade.
I started some from seed and they have popped up their tiny tiny leaves - the size of a flea!
Planting them is really difficult....cant' hardly see the seed so I took a gamble and lightly sprinkled, they are still clustered into close groups.
If you have any guidlines as to transplanting before the roots tangle and choke eachother out, I'd appreciate it.
They are only about 5 days old as of 3/29/03.

mmmmmmm I always buy mine as seedlings from the nursery...I will ask my friend who owns a nursery how he does it though...
