Kaustubh, I assume that you are asking which part of the plant is poisonous. All parts including roots. I do cut them and put them in the vases though. They look pretty standing in the corner of the room for a couple of days.

Thanks Klahanie.. but i meant how did you propagate them..? from cuttings or from seed... i'd love to grow them but am not sure how do i start..

Seeds, They seed freely ....lots of seeds ...so one have to be careful where they are planted. Around the perimeter of the property is the best...in my opinion. This is a biennial plant so the first year there are only leaves.
Because they seed so profusely they do not have to be replanted. On the contrary... in the smaller gardens they will have to be thinned. Bees love them. They are pretty plants with long stately stems.... providing an architectural interest.
Can you get the seeds where you live? If not I can send you some.

We do... i saw them on the nursery stalls a few weeks back wasn't sure if my weather would be able to give me blooms like it showed on the package.. but now i am going to give it a try anyway... The picture you put up is too much to resist...!

Klahanie... You are wonderful as always..:)
