    Spot on description, good germination, hardy even at the seedling stage

    Grows well in western Oregon with minimal care. Sometimes it wants water, sometimes a bit of nitrogen, but is happily growing in rather poor soil. Research has shown it to help heal up to 4th (but not 5th degree) burns and to prevent infection and help to heal stubborn wounds. Highly underappreciated plant. Grow a few.
