Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Chinese Houses Flower Seeds
Collinsia heterophylla Chinese Houses
Package contains 500 mg ~400 seeds
Spires of small, pagoda-shaped, light purple and white blooms are 1-2' tall. Chinese Houses is an annual. It grows quickly, blooms heavily, and dies with the first frost. Can regrow following spring if seed falls on bare ground.
This California native annual appreciates rich, moist soil. Great near ditches or areas that stay moist. Plant spring or fall, and simply scatter seed on loosened soil and then compress the seed into the dirt by lightly walking on it. Do not cover with soil. Easy to grow.
