Not sure why, they just never seemed to make it past 4 inches tall.
But this one.
A gift from my neighbor, I planted this in the "Golden" soil. I have a small spot next to the house facing East that has the sweetest soil. Annuals come back year after year, tomatoes grow like weeds and flowers are more colorful than the brightest rainbow.
Sunflowers will be in my future, for sure. And perhaps some note cards to savor through the winter months.
