Yes, it is lovely, does it self seed? Great shot of the long wing as well.

Very nice, Tina. Where did you find it? And what are its requirements? Great to hear from you again.

Yes, it self-seeds and you can get the seeds for it (and many other wildflowers) from the Florida Wildflower Growers Co-Op.

Mine is getting ready to bloom too! I got it from Biosphere Nursery in Wintergarden. I like it although it is considerally bigger than it was last year!
