Last time we were at the filipino grocery store, my mom bought bought some Star Anise seeds. That got me wondering if they will grow, so I got four seeds and placed it on a a wet paper towel to see if they will sprout. If they do, I can try to grow some in the spring.
Two weekends ago, I was down in Milpitas (California), and noticed this Coleus-like plant in my sister-in-law’s sister’s garden. She didn’t know what it was, but gave me a couple cuttings.
