Bloom time: Late summer
Hardiness zones: 8-11
Seed size: Seeds are large (about 10mm), shiny, flat, and bark brown/black colored.

Germination: Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. For best results, obtain a sterile seed-start mix, and place the seeds just under the surface of the pre-moistened growing medium. Keep moist until germination, which can take about 3 weeks. You can cover the container with clear plastic if you wish, to retain moisture until germination. Once seeds emerge, place in a sunny place outdoors if temperatures permit.
