All started in cellar under grow lights, warmed with pad until sprouted. Enured gradually a few weeks later (mid April) They are now incredibly beautiful..ALL plants not only survived, they are the stars of my gardens....

Nice intense colors against the dark foliage...

These intense blossoms of these plants offer a nice contrast to the dark foliage. I wish we were able to post pictures here. I have mostly intense reds and salmon colored ones. But, I lost quite a few seedlings to transplant shock. (I didn't acclimate them properly to the sun after germinating them indoors). The blossoms stand up tall over the foliage. My plants are about three feet tall now (in June) and I set them outside at the end of April. I'll probably get another packet next season and grow some out to give to my friends.

Vigous plants, easy to start from seed
Diana from ID wrote on October 13, 2014

I planted my seedlings into the garden the first part of May. They started growing immediately and kept growing and growing and growing. THEY NEED TO BE STAKED! It is a lot easier to tie them to the stakes as they grow. It is quite difficult to corral 4 ft tall plants that are already bent over.The stems are sturdy but a little brittle, so you need to be careful when standing the bent plants upright.The blooms are beautiful, plentiful and nicely held above the nearly black glossy foliage. This makes them easy to deadhead and cut for indoor display. It is Oct 12 and they are still blooming as we have not had a frost yet. The only down side is that I got mostly red and orange flowers. I am going to start a few more next year to try to get some other colors.
