Thanks Lenjo I like growing them in pots around things. These are in a pot I have a big Brugmansia in.

And your brug is pink too? Sounds like a pretty pot, Peggy. How are your dahlias doing?

They are doing fine none blooming yet. I noticed yesterday a couple of them have buds so it won't be long. I can't wait to see them all.

Mystic, do you grow yours from seed? When do you start them? I love godetia and it was easy to grow when I lived in Seattle but it doesn't seem happy here in Ohio. I can't put it out too early or it freezes. But if I wait until our frost free date it suffers from the heat, even in the shade. :^(

Yes I grew them from seed. I started them at the end of Febuary. I put them out the first part of May. Your right they don't do well in the heat.
