    IN LOVE WITH THIS GORGEOUS PLANT. grows effortlessly anywhere, all year if brought inside the house during the cold months! Blooms, blooms, blooms that look like flying little Red Cardinal Birds! Grows fast into big stalk bushes, better to have support, but not necessary. I wish I had more land, this would cover it! I love em. Huntsville, Alabama (flowers are wonderful to press and add to crafts.). I totally RECOMMEND these seeds.
