A very unique old heirloom with dark foliage and brilliant fire-red blossoms that are delicious in salads. It was popular in Victorian times.

What are the pros? beautiful flowers, unique look

What are the cons? slower growth than expected

Review:

I actually loved the plants once they established themselves, however, that seemed a little doubtful at first. There was some sparce germination problems(only slightly)some were just much slower to take. The young plants took some time to establish themselves(seemed sensitive as seedlings) but did try to share some blooms early on, which had me anticipating the full bloom potential. On their behalf, we had an extremely harsh planting season that year: drought periods with heavy(none soil soaking) storms in between. so, under less than ideal conditions, they did go on to establish themselves and look beautiful the rest of the year. The color of the blooms were worth the wait and the leaf type make a striking contrast to the other companion plants. Id highly recommend this flower.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

Review:

I see the reviews for poor germination but it looks like I got 100%. Simply stuck them in the ground right before a rain and they all came up a few days later. I can't wait to see them flower.

Review:

I am confused - description says "fire-red" but the photo shows pumpkin-orange flowers. Not ordering because don't know what really going to receive... recommend sellers address the discrepancy. Had to put a rating so just chose middle star, but haven't actually grown them yet.

Great for attracting aphids
Easy to Grow 3.0

What are the pros? great for attracting aphids

What are the cons? A little hard to get started

Review:

I, too, had a little trouble getting many of my seeds to germinate. But the ones that did turned out fantastic. Really pretty, unique foliage and gorgeous flowers. Also, they really sucked in the aphids. I hated to sacrifice them, but that's why I bought them in the first place. This year I did not find ANY aphids on my tomato plants, as a result - the first time that's ever happened! I will definitely buy again.
