detailed seed-starting info below

Showy flowers, golden yellow streaked with burgundy in the throat, on a heat-tolerant plant originating in tropical Africa. They are quick to flower (ours started under the basement lights), and their glossy deep green foliage contributes to the appeal. I hope they self-seed, since there are only so many annuals (to our garden) that I can start any particular season.
