I am so excited because this plant just popped up in my garden. I was going to buy some seeds for it after I heard it was a good nectar plant. I wonder how the seeds are dispersed? It showed up right in my hummingbird section but I don't suppose they can transport seeds. Anyway its not much to look at but its kind of big and interesting.
