I live in Alabama, zone 8b. I love flowers and plants of all kinds! Would consider myself as a beginner so any advice or tips is greatly appreciated.

@ofthought this is the one I had already. Started it from some cuttings it's now finally about a foot and half tall and just put off first bloom!

@ofthought I would love to save seeds but am not good at it at all lol. Probably sounds crazy but on most of my plants when it blooms I try to find where the seeds are but haven't got a clue.

Nor am I. I've taken to twist tying a brown paper bag when they are close. Don't know how it's working, but gonna see.

@travishill Yes!! I had no idea they even had white. Got them off the Lowe's clearance! They come mixed with the white and purple. I already have this plant but I was amazed by the white.
