These little-known charmers are native to South Africa, and commonly known as ''baboon flowers''. They grow 12-18'' tall, produce lush blades of ribbed foliage, and blooms in shades of red, white, and blue-lavender from July into August. Wonderfully pretty flowers.
In Massachusetts I use to see lots of Packman broccoli pre-started plants available at local nurseries but this year do not see any. We liked this variety since it produces lots of side shoots. It may be too late for this year to grow from seeds but what pre-started varieties could I select which has the same side shoot production as Packman.
