I was told by friends and family not to bother trying to grow these as they are very difficult to germinate. Hhm So I followed the instructions on the packet to the letter.............. In the second year the plants flowered and they where stunning. I mean they stole the show. On the shady side of the garden, they where spectacular and should be even better next year. They can be a little fragile though, so keep your cats away if possible. These seeds are well worth a try. Mark
