Cerinthe major var purpurascens (Cerinthe major)

Self-sown. Once you've got it in the garden, it does seed itself.

Really? Well - there would be plenty to go round - some for me, and lots for them. Shall I save you some seeds later on?

No thanks B. I love them, but I don't have room for many annuals.....wish I had your space!

I love these too and am looking forward to my seedlings taking off soon. I lost last years in the frost:(

Are you OK for seeds? I'll collect them, I think, and offer them to members. :-)))

Hope OH is looking after ours, as we lost it 2 winters ago.......had been growing it for over 20 years too (obviously not the same one, lol)

Thanks for the offer of seeds, Spritz. I actually bought some again this year.

I guess the mice got the seeds.....

This year I have planted some in a tall pot (ala Carol from Gardener's World! :)

Have we got to call you 'Carol' now, then? lol.

We occasionally see little mice in the garden, but obviously not enough of them to eat all the seeds, because plants appear in the strangest of places! :-)
