Blooming for the first time, the jury's still out on this SDB seedling I
call "odd guy" that self sowed in one of my landscaped beds. There's mostly

The buds are striped though, which I thought was interesting, plus each
flower was slightly different, a terminal plus 2 buds on each stalk, no pbf
though. It kept it's substance through a week of very high temps, where
others around it faded fast. It's still blooming through several heavy
I tried numerous times for a better picture, but no go.
