I had perfect germination. I mixed the seed with soil and water and put them in the fridge about 50 days before I tried to germinate them and it gave me really great germination. They plants have done very well and have matured enough to bloom in the year I planted them. They are attractive and I think the color is a nice contrast with the orange of typical butterfly weed which I have growing right beside them.

Fast germination. Planting a variety of butterfly weed along one side of the house. Looking forward to seeing blooms!

Incredibly short germination time - great germination rate! I just bought these. Using the wet coffee filter method, most of the seeds germinated 48 hours after sprinkling them on the wet coffee filter. They are ready to transfer to expanded peat pellets now. Wet coffee filter method: Buy a package of white coffee filters (the basket-shaped kind that go in the drip coffee maker). Put on powder-free disposable gloves. Spread a filter on a clean plate and wet it with cold water, Sprinkle seeds on bottom half, fold up filter like an envelope (fold the top down and sides in), and put in a sandwich zip lock bag. Label with permanent marker and put it on top of refrigerator in a clear shoebox (no lid) and check for germination rate twice a day. Most of our seeds sprouted within 48 hours, and we expect the rest to sprout today or tomorrow.
