    I haven't started any this year, but I do have seeds. This is another that I really like. They will overwinter, but they do not do as good the second year, so I didn't try this past winter.

    I like the lighter colored yellow and cream as well as the pick ones, but I gotta tell you that they are all very PRETTY! I have always grown them in a pot, but one day hope to try them in the ground.

    Ann,
    These were so easy to grow from seed. But they are expensive at the nrseries around here. I have about 30 that I started from seed. I think everyone of them germinated.

    Vicki,

    If you are growng these for annuals, I have lots of Dutchman Pipe seeds. At least, I think they are viable. I couldn't believe how many of them were in each pod. I'll have to try to germinate a few of them to see if they are fully developed. If they are, I probably have close to 1,000 seeds. Actually, I don't know, but I have picked 4 pods.

    I want to try some Black Eyed Susans in the ground next spring, so that I can see if that will perhaps produce more seeds. The vines are delicate making them perfect for a hanging plant, so I have always grown them that way.
