I have bought this plant for a few years from a garden center but this year I thought I'd give it a try with seeds. From experience I already knew about not letting them dry out ever. They will look limp and will perk up with water but the leaves will turn brown and brittle it doesn't kill the plant. Not a plant for benign neglect. I put them along our walk to the front door. Lovely smell the neighbor kids think they smell like grape candy. Attracts bees and painted lady butterfliesin my area especially from August on.

I so wish these were perennial in my zone! They were easy to start from seed and have done so well out in the garden (morning sun and afternoon shade). Not to mention the fragrance is amazing. So happy with these.

Had I known earlier that this plant didn't like to dry out, and preferred a bit of afternoon shade, my review would be higher. It hung in there all summer, but looks a bit ratty. It's in a pot, so I'll bring it inside and see if it will revive, or if I just need to start a new one (or a couple!). The flowers look gorgeous and smell better. Love it around the front of my pepper pots!
