Excellent Germination rate, but . . .
Bird Lover from IL wrote on July 25, 2016

I started these seeds indoors under a grow light about 2 months before transplanting into the ground and almost every seed I planted germinated. However, I've been disappointed that these plants are unlikely to flower the first year. the plants are growing bigger but not nearly big enough to support flower stalks even if there's been no sign of flower buds. I'll report back next year if the plants make it through my zone 5 winter and actually flower.

Waiting for flowers to bloom . . .
Bird Lover from IL wrote on July 14, 2016

I started these seeds indoors in early April and they had an excellent germination rate. After 2 months, I transplanted the seedlings into the ground giving them a shot of starter fertilizer. They were slow to get established but by the end of June they finally started showing signs of growth. It is now mid-July and although the plants have grown larger and look sturdier, they're still too small to be flowering. I realize these are perennials and take longer to get established but the description should have indicated we shouldn't expect them to flower the first year. IF they do flower this year, it won't be until early Fall at best at the rate they've been growing. I can't review their flowering habit yet but will come back in the Fall to report whether or not they flowered this year.

Usually I get good germination from their seeds.
