Are they hardy ?
Gorgeous colour Jo. Could be very tempted by that myself....
Oh that sounds fabulous, I have a passion for black plants so this comes very close.
Where have you ordered your seed from please ,? That one is a beauty
I found M. paniculata from seed took two or three years to flower. Some of the larger plants flowered in their second year, and some in the third. Annuals they are not. My seed may have been mixed, some came pink and others yellow.
Thanks jo , these are some I've just got to have
