Amish Cockscomb

Last spring someone gave me some starts of Amish Cockscomb, at the time I did not know what it was and neither did she, but someone on my blog identified it last summer. They self sow and I had them in my flower bed again this year. However on Saturday I saw REAL Amish were about 5 times the size on the ones I have had the past two summers, the blooms were over a foot across and were in almost every flower bed we passed. At one shop I bought a flower for a dollar, I have it drying now and will harvest the seeds so hopefully next year I will have larger blooms, but maybe it is the horse manure they use for fertilizer.
