I didn't think it survived the winter, but one day here was this gorgeous bloom, and a bee flew inside as I was taking this picture!

That is truly beautiful. I have hollyhocks of all colours but I've never seen one this colour. What a treasure.

Marciaz3 - of course I am saving the seeds. They are extra precious, as there were only 3 blooms!

Very pretty Anna!

I WS'd and planted some too, but I believe the Castor Beans are hiding them, hopefully they surprise me next year with blooms.

Whoo! That is beautiful..Never seen anything like that before either. Where did you buy the seeds from?

I ordered them from Patrick Studio. They are struggling small plants, that's why the photo is so precious. Hopefully next year they will do better.

Well, by golly my Crme de Cassis surprised me today, it's blooming! I WS'd the seed on March 24/06, and here I thought I had to wait till next year to see any blooms ;)
