What are the pros? self-seeds, colors, unusual

What are the cons? start indoors for center plume

Review:

Living in zone 5/6 your plants will reseed, but if you want the big center plume you will need to start them indoors. My self-seeded plants had many side branches (5' tall) or had a few side branches and one undersized center plume (2' tall). Also, about the colors: most of the time the colors of the plants are magenta and yellow; however, I had one fire-engine-red, a couple whitish, but never any orange.

Review:

I only planted half of the packet of the very tiny seeds. Placing about four to six plants to the west ends of the onions and bush beans rows, and here and there among the cucumber plantings. I thought they would be taller. I was glad they germinated in our climate! So only getting five inches wide and from ten inches tall to four feet tall, they completely took center stage catching the sunlight in colors of orange, magenta, flame red, yellow, and chartreuse green looking like stained glass growing in the garden. I couldn't bring myself to eat them- they were too beautiful! I got the most comments from visitors about these pampas plume mixed of all the plants in this section. Only the frost took away their show. So, I guess I have found another "must have" for my collection, and will plant many more of these in the future. I highly recommend trying these for some excitement in the veggie garden!

What are the pros? ez, pretty, yummy, self-sows

What are the cons? needs heat to start growing

Review:

These are my favorite in the garden. There is a central stalk about 3-5'h in excellent soil. In the center there is a large center flower and radiating from the stem are a lot of branches that work really well as a filler in a floral arrangement. See photo above, though none of my flowers were baby pink. The colors are usually bright yellow, crimson red, or magenta pink. Self-seeds freely. Delicious leaves raw or cooked.

Review:

I'm usually not great at growing flowers. I opened the flower packet and just threw the seeds on then ground, covered them up and hoped for the best. These flowers are gorgeous and came up fast! Visitors to our homestead are wowed by the vibrant colors. I will be growing these flowers every year!

What are the pros? great price! the web pic

What are the cons? all one color

Review:

I planted these very early in the Spring, as early as I could...I believe I live in zone 5 but we had a late frost in May and early June!! I know crazy right. And it was a cold summer start then turned into a rainy hot humid summer by mid July. So after the weather started warming up again near late June I decided to plant some more. They are growing pretty fast and they are blooming I don't know how tall they will get but all the plumes so far are a burgundy color. I hope to get more colors in there but even with the burgundy/maroon I will be pleased.
