Review:

Perfect for tiny spaces. I have one growing beautifully with minimal room for root growth! These grow quickly in hot conditions similar to peppers. Edible flowers I am told, but I only eat the leaves. They are an excellent alternative to bitter salad greens in the hot days of summer. There is a wide variety of colors: crimson, magenta, salmon & orange, and yellow. The color of the seedling does not always correspond to the color of the resulting flower. Excellent cut flower fresh or dry, but I would recommend the larger variety for more blooms with longer stems. The stems on mine are only about 6-7" long. Self-seeds.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
