2nd Year Maturity. Gnome Series seeds grow one of summer's most unique, vigorous, and exclusive blooms boasting exotic globe-shaped gomphrena heads. Gnome Series seeds are an exciting and miniature substitute in the garden and will bloom up until the frost long after others have lost their luster. Gnome Series gomphrena seeds are an ideal grow to splash among wildflower mixes, untamed meadows, and many wide open spaces. Gomphrena is native to hot and arid regions across both Central and South America and celebrated for its weed-like tolerance to heat and drought.
