@lesliecole49 I’ve not had them before. They came out of a rockery seed mix. 2 seasons it grew for. No idea what it was. The woody stem puzzled me. Thankfully I’ve gt friends to help now I’ll have plenty 😍

They are usually considered an annual, sometimes they reseed.

Yes, they dry up then open quickly so keep your eye on them

Help me identify this plant pl. #plantid. I’ve had this for years and now is only flowering. I’m sure it was from a packet of seeds. Rockery or cottage. Can’t remember
