Beautiful color on this one! I hope you're saving seeds. These are wonderfully self fertile and you can pull some interesting colors out of the gene pool.
We've had enough frosts recently to kill the tomatoes and put an end to the corn for this year. Rather than take a chance that I wouldn't get seeds from the Pardancandas and some of the dicotoma, I've thrown them in pots and hauled them indoors.
A few newbies from a seed swap are finally blooming and at least 2 are a clear corn yellow.
The one showing some spring variegation is blooming its head off and is a lovely purple and gold with spots. (The photo was taken out in the garden.) I counted 39 buds on one stem. Height is a bit better than average for us at 49" tall and (finally!) it looks like leaf spot is on the decline though it had been in a thickly planted bed with overhead watering.
I've been selfing every bloom hoping to bring up a stronger variegated pattern in the leaves. Keeping my fingers crossed.
