Yes, Michael. :cool:

I've got some seeds from friends so I can start them. If you got the space, I can then proceed. Want or not? No need "Orh Nee". :grin: :happy: If you have a backyard with a fence, I think you can just put them near the fence and they'll be okay.

Okay, have put the seeds to soak and will plant them in soil this evening.

I love Orh Nee and it is a rare treat for me as I don't find a lot of place selling it. Hope you don't think that I'm insulting your Orh Nee by not wanting it. :grin:

it's easy to grow and loves the sun provided it doesn't dry out too much
I had the double petalled one as well as the single. I prefered the form of the single- the double petalled one looked a bit too "busy" and dunno... the single one looked prettier to me. :grin:

You have to remember - it may grow like a weed here, and be prolific in flowers and seed production - but this is probably an exotic for them in the US - hence the exhorbitant price.
