Aren't they spectacular?!! should grab a handful and put them in an envelope ...then you could plant a stand of them. I think I will look for some.

Would you like me to send you some seed?
I've collected loads, bbit of an addiction of mine...

That's very generous of you to offer Chloris... but to save you postage, I'm sure I have a number of plants growing nearby(In fact I found two plants snuggled into my flower beds) that I can take seed from. I apologize, I just read my post...I wasn't hinting...just observing. thanks for the offer, though.
