What are the pros? grows quickly

What are the cons? want orange flowers got white

Review:

I love this plant. I read that you can't grow in pot but that's false. I've always grown in pots and this year my lions tail is at least 6ft tall and is starting to bloom, the 1 I planted in the ground is only about 4ft and has not bloomed yet. However, I thought I purchased the orange flowers but so far they're white with an orange tint. I'm not sure if the hummingbirds are going to like these. Guess I'll find out real soon.

What are the pros? Fast growth, honey bee magnet

What are the cons? None

Review:

Rainy and cool summer late sow (started indoors end of March). Plenty of blooms end of August. 7-8' tall, 3' wide with 8 hours of direct sunlight. Scarce use of compost. Bees are attracted by the flowers. It has nonetheless been the coup de coeur of the year. Great for mass planting. Nice combination with red amaranth and giant yellow sunflower.

What are the pros? Easy to take cuttings.

What are the cons? Cannot start early in season.

Review:

We sowed the seed in trays. The seedlings were small, but they develeoped a great root system. Lion's Tail needs to go into the warm soil as soon as possible. It does not produce blossoms in pots, it just becomes leggy. In a warm climate it is spectacular.

What are the pros? good flower form

What are the cons? weak coloration, leggy

Review:

They germinated well and grew like weeds, but the mature plants have turned out to be very leggy and the flowers are a sort of silvery orange rather than the vibrant orange I was expecting. Beautiful in their own way though. A handsome plant but I think probably massed in the back of the border rather than as a feature. They don't start flowering until full summer here, late July in our case. This is normal, one would not expect them any earlier. Oh and - the flower spikes dry beautifully if you hang them upside down in a warm dry place. Kept their colour nicely.

What are the pros? Grows tall with sturdy stems

What are the cons? Germination rate not great

Review:

We started a packet of seeds in a greenhouse in November. 2/3 sprouted, but didn't appear to thrive. Meanwhile, the roots were developing. Seeds started in late March did much better. This plant develops lots of roots before it begins to grow taller. Don't wait too long to transplant out or it will become pot-bound. November seedlings are now in 3 gallon pots and are 3 feet tall with flowers.
