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

Texas Paintbrush Flower Seed
250 mg (roughly 2800 seeds, sows 100 square feet)
This Texas native covers hills and roadsides in a rich red-orange carpet from March to May. The single erect stems stand 8-24 inches high. Pairs beautifully with Texas Bluebonnet, and attracts butterflies.
Texas paintbrush takes some care to establish. Germination may take 30-120 days, and requires soil temperatures between 55°F--65°F. Seeds are generally started in August-December. The seeds are very small and should be sown directly on the soil surface and lightly raked in. Texas Paintbrush develops a single slender tap root, so young plants do not transplant well. Grows best in full sun and well drained soil.
