I have seeds of a flowering plant called Gul-e-Khaira, it reaches to about 2 meters in fertile soil and blooms from spring till mid summer and the best thing is when you plant a sibling from one place to another it usually changes colour, i have three colours, light pink, dark pink and i think maroon. let me know if interested.
