This carefree heirloom garden plant was once common in Southern gardens. Each day bright flowers open and close in the evening. I pick the spent flowers to cook. The tubers and young leaves are edible also. Our plants were propagated from ones that Susie Green, my stepmother’s mother, planted in her Bibb Co., Ga. garden, many decades ago. The soil is sticky after rains but hard as a brick during droughts. They thrive in coastal sand too. (If you kill them, you have talent). Give them full sun to light shade. Protect them from deer. Most are double but there are a few singles in the group.
