Sown as an afterthought this year from a mix - got one plant from 10 seeds. It's in a 5" pot for now; this one will overwinter inside and hopefully survive to grow on next year.

I didn't think the flowers would be so big and so profuse .....

Looking forward to next year!

Beautiful, I love the color.

I may have to bring in a black-eyed susan vine that hasn't bloomed yet, but is growing nicely.

I know you'll understand my joy!

Oh, how exquisite -- especially backlit like that! Where did you find the seeds?

Hi Pat!

I got the seeds back in 2003 from Parks - 'Crepe de Chine' mix. The plant is still outside, and looks like it's trying to open some more flowers, even though it's freezing out there (OK, it's only 56°, but the wind is fierce!). I'll have to bring it in soon ......
