    The literature says yes they do. I bought a packet of seeds (very tiny little things) in the spring and planted them. Had one seedling. Transplanted it mid-summer. It's now about 1.5 feet tall. Not quite the spectacular growth the literature promised, but we'll give it time. Were I doing it again, I would buy a seeding rather then seeds.

    They grow fast here. Very attractive blooms. I haven't seen my bees working them but that doesn't necessarily mean that they don't....just not in obviously high numbers.
