I planted seed of this during the early winter of 2003. I placed the seed in a peat pot filled with 3/4 potting soil and 1/4 vermiculite. The seed was pressed into the vermiculite and slightly covered.
The seeds had just begun to form roots on October 25, 2004. I potted them up into larger pots and have put them in my basement where hopefully the roots will continue to grow and I will have foliage by spring.
Fast forward to the spring of 2010. The young seedling has been growing in the front flower bed since 2005. I had one small pinkish colored bloom this spring. Hopefully the spring of 2011 will bring additional blooms.
