mines not very big at all this year and the other seeds I started are very slow growing.Yet the year Rita visited my tree was 10 ft and blown flat.

Fabulistic!

That is awesome! Gorgeous color!

It is *almost* hardy here.... can go down to -10 degrees I read. In a normal winter, if we have those any more, the -10 would be fine.

Does it really need wet soil all the time? That's pretty hard to come by here in the summer :(

Is it easy to start from seed? Any pointers you might have would be greatly appreciated.

Those TX Stars are some beautiful flowers. Mine is not that tall, due to freeze last winter.
