Hi Stormy,

My computer is down again so I'm only on briefly....

Here's a link on the plant. http://www.gardencrossings.com/plantname/Aster-Peter-III

Germination in 10- 15 days. Sow 1/16" deep. Preferred soil temp 65-70 degrees. Pre-chill seed for 2 weeks before sowing.

Hope this helps. Smiling

Wonderful!!

I'm addicted to seed sowing now, I think. I'm still sowing, even though I'm running out of space in the flower beds!

New computer....up and running! Hurray!

Everything's different, of course, but at least I'm fully functional again. Whew!! (.......or at least as functional as I ever was.. Rolling on the floor laughing )

Have to try to load a pix. Big Grin

Crying Okay, I can't seem to load a pix yet....drat! Guess I'm not exactly fully functional yet.

I'm off to try to download Firefox....again.

Hope everyone is having a pleasant evening. Smiling

Chelle and Karen, RCN/Deb posted a photo today of a very beautiful small chocolate brown Mimosa that she has growing in a pot. I had no idea they came in brown foliage.

It's over here in her post on June 30th. It's called Abizia Summer Chocolate.

Looks pretty. I didn't't know there was a brown one, either.

Very pretty Mimosa!

Gonna try to upload a pix; again.

Okay! Thumbs up

I had to make it much smaller than normal to get it to go, so it must be my connection causing the difficulty.

Comsos - from seed of Limara Lemon. Luv the brightness of this yellow bloom. It's a much smaller plant than I'm accustomed to growing as well; it's only about 8" tall.

That's really pretty Chelle. It's nice to have a such a pretty short flowering plant.

Pretty, chelle. I grew some short cosmos like that, but, like so many others, they reseeded too much in my yard and I had to get rid of them.

I must be the only person who has trouble keeping cosmos alive. I have planted any number of varieties and not only do they not reseed, they don't overwinter either.

Stormy, there aren't any cosmos that are hardy as far north as Pa, are there? I don't think so... Some are hardy in hot zones, but not in the north.

Karen, yes there are, but obviously not for me. The part of Pa that I live in sits on one of the Atlantic Ocean bays and is the warmest part of the state. Many zone 7 plants live here. I'm about 15 miles from the bay but can still grow a number of plants rated for zone 7.

Still surprized, I didn't know any were perennials that far north. I thought it was only the deep south, like zones 9 and 10 maybe. I was thinking Florida Smiling

I lose a lot of plants to the winter wet, I think. Even if they'd survive my zone 6 winter temps, it's the wet clay in winter that gets them.

Karen, There are a number of Cosmos that are hardy to zone 7. In MAM many of the gals in Jersey, Delaware, MD and VA have beautiful stands of perennial cosmos.

Allison/Onewish who is almost in zone 5 in the hills of North Jersey has a cosmos, which we can't identify that grows over 6' tall and comes back every year. She got it from a DG swap in New England.

I've seen her pictures, but I thought they were new annuals from seed each year.

My sensation cosmos come back every year, but it's from self-seeding rather than coming back from the same plant. They're not a nuisance, however; they don't produce zillions of plants, just a few here and there.

I'd never had Victoria Blue salvia self-seed before this year, but now I do......there are several blooming already - kinda glad I didn't buy any this year.
