They'll do better for you than me.They like cooler temps.they do better in rich soil.They are a great dried flower.I grew them when lived Indpls.The flowers will be better mid summer for drying.just hang them upsidedown somewhere warm& dry& dark.The stalks will get 36 inches to 42 inches.I grew mine in a blue tub.They dry to to a peachy tan.fertilize every 2 weeks.

I'm tempted to try some for the wintertimes when my temps ARE cooler.Remember me in fall for seeds.
Oh.some folks don't seem to like them.My sis thinks they ugly.Europe developed a shorter cultiver,but not availeable in the states yet.

breakfast

mine is a winterr time bulb.
I planted it last fall first time...I started out 3 bulbs and it snowed on them, I think the other 2 got stunted.

If there are seeds......I put your name down..
Thanks for the info......Dont know what color they re yet.
Just broke out of the shell.
