Annual Odd Balls

Westbrook, ME(Zone 5a)

I always try to grow a few different odd ball annuals each year. You know ... ones that you won't find at the local HD. I grow them from seed but once in a while you can find something different at a nursery or at the farmers market. Let's see ... a couple that I'm looking forward to this year are South African foxglove Ceratotheca triloba (seeds from a trade) and Mirabilis longiflora which is a different species of 4 o'clock with long white tubular flowers. It's such a treat to anxiously await something new and different every year. The trouble is I want to grow them all! I'd love to hear about what everyone else is growing that's new or unusual and not your humdrum annuals that everyone else has.
