Trial: Annual

Years Trialed: 1998

Good Qualities

Good healthy plant (2); Grows fast; The color!; Stem length; Shape of the flower; No one knew what it was; Majority of plants lived through the summer; High germination; Low maintenance in the greenhouse.


Flower stem short (2); Biennial (2); One plant flowered in early September; Terrible germination; Weak little plants – hope they survive the winter


Will continue to grow this next year to see flower; I am using this as a biennial; Plants look good, bloom next spring?; If indeed this is an annual it is doomed here in Vermont! Germination was good. I gave plants to 2 others; we all had the same experience of extremely slow growth. By end of September, all the plants consisted of a small rosette about 5; across and a 1 2; high. All three of us wonder if this is not a biennial rather than an annual; Will leave in ground for next year’s flowering; This looks like it will be a good perennial for Oklahoma & able to handle the adverse weather conditions; Started plants 4 weeks earlier than needed, but they went out to the field in good shape. Will comment next year.
