    Hi all,

    I have an abundance of rooster comb seeds. I can fill probably at least 30 orders, so just reply here and send a sases to me:

    17 Nash Rd.
    North Salem, NY 10560

    Plant details:
    -Annuals that grow up to 5' high (in good soil)
    -need at least 1/2 day sun for optimal growth
    -One-stalk plant so, while tall, they don't take up a lot of room in a flower bed
    -Bright magenta flower heads begin to appear in late summer that can be as big as a basket ball (very impressive when this size!). I've heard it said that it looks a little like coral. Last until the end of the season.
    -no special needs - can take short dry spells fairly well, doesn't mind heat waves or cool spells.
    -A freeze will kill seeds, so they must be stored inside untill you either a) sow in a pot or b) sow in the ground after the last frost. These plants do produce an insane amount of seeds (worse than capensis).

    Generally a very cool garden plant!

    Hey CopcarFC, don't know about any web sights....But you don't need one. They're a cinch. Just sow in normal potting soil by sprinkling them on top of the soil. They're so easy, that in May (about a month late for planting around here) I tossed some off of my deck....and got bunch of sprouts that grew into great flowers (that are just now dieing with our first frosts).
