Any experience of Cerinthe major 'Purpurascens'
I visted a friend's garden today where these super plants were huge with woody stems, I admired them and asked for more details. She gave me the empty seed packet which says they are hardy ANNUAL.. and to sew outdoors in April.. which is now. Yet these are fully grown. Does 'hardy' before annual mean that they stay over more than one year? I am confused. If I get some seeds and plant them now how will they manage to get so big?
