What are the pros? Colorful, Hardy
What are the cons? fall over
The seeds of my packet germinated well and produced many colorful flowers. They required very little water. My direct sown plants were floppy and fell over, but I've always found that volunteers seem to grow with a sturdier stem so I'm waiting this year for a better result in that aspect.
The seed heads are still on my plants (which are propped up with hoops) and are nicely decorative in the xeric wildlife strip I've planted. Nice addition to my winter garden, as well as, adding lots of color and butterfly-enticing blooms this summer and fall.
