What are the pros? gorgeous color, carefree
What are the cons? leaves can "sunburn"
These are very pretty flowers. They bloomed for about 3 weeks and are now forming buds for, apparently, another round of blooms. There are LOTS of seeds in each seed head and each plant produces several of these, some more than others. But, I'd say the average is around 5 blossoms per plant. Some blooms last for one day, while others last several days (I suspect weather may play a role in this). I have some growing in a well-weeded bed with Altrei lupines and some growing in a neglected bed (which, of course, wasn't the plan, but is how it has ended up) and they all act the same. Some are underneath the shade of a large tree each day and some are in bright, direct sun most of the day--they don't seem to care much about their conditions. They happily grow regardless--a nice trait. Beware, though, in the early stages this seedling can be mistaken for a weed, so you may want to grow a few in a pot at first so you know what you are looking for.
