Comments about American Meadows Obedient Plant Seeds:
I bought this plant from a garden center, but I wish I had known that I could get seed from American Meadows or I would have gone that route. Each tiny flower is attached to a stem which sits in a "cup" on the main stem. So you can turn the flower and it stays where you put it, hence the "obedient" part. It blooms in late summer and the delicate pink color is a nice change from the oranges, yellows and reds that you usually see with late summer bloomers. This is a novel plant, not a showstopper, but deserves a place in the garden and is fun to play with.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
