    • Attempted this variety and Campfire bidens. While Campfire did so so the Goldilocks bloomed once and then was outcompeted by other plants in combination or simply died out. A shame because I view a lot of recipes I like but if it contains bidens I keep searching.

      Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.
