Hi curlysue,

You can grow shoo-fly plant from seed.
Blooming time is mid-spring and sometimes mistaken as a weed.
Be careful though if you have kids or pets as all parts are poisonous.

From seed... sow indoors before last frost, direct sow after last frost :)

For me these would reseed like crazy,so I don't really think it matters.
