I wish you could post a photo of them. I'll bet they are beautiful.

So are yours growing free-standing then? If yes, do they hold up to the wind...or is your place real sheltered?

Post back what you learn about them!

SweetFeet, yes, at present they are freestanding. They really should be staked, but I just haven't made time to do so. And at four to five feet tall, they will break over on occasion, but most are somewhat protected at present by some hedge that also grew voluntary. Several sprigs of hedge came up along the edge of the garden along the road, so I just let them grow to help control dust.
I have some books on gardening and so far have found nothing mentioned about propagation from seed. Obviously it would take longer for a plant to mature, but that is the only explanation I can come up with as to why they are scattered all over the garden as it was tilled three years in a row, but has been dormant since 2009.

Thanks. I wondered how they did out in the open, because I've only ever seen folks plant them right close to a fence or a barn/granary.
