What are the pros? Attractive, easy

What are the cons? Hungry bugs

Review:

I planted them for the blooms to make healing skin oil. During the summer they started blooming, and very soon the blooms were eaten, leaving bare stems. I didn't see the culprits, but assume it was blister beetles. After that I managed to keep them from getting eaten by covering with a screened cage. But then fall arrived, and they are wonderful. It's December, they are still blooming, and nothing is eating the buds and blooms now. When temps in November got down to the low 20s (very rare here in Texas), I covered them with the same cage covered with frost blanket instead of screen. They might not even have needed that. They are thriving in the cold weather. Even though they were getting munched, I still gave them 5 stars because they are perfect otherwise. I will grow them every year.

Review:

I have grown these in in Norfolk and VaBch. They are utterly carefree, profuse bloomers that give the flavor of "Chicken in a Biscuit" crackers to my scrambled eggs.

Review:

I put the seeds in the ground and they just kept coming. They went to seed mid-seed, and they are coming up again for the fall. However, I am pulled all of mine. They attract cucumber beetles like the plague. As I pulled them out of the soil, it was filled with cucumber beetle larve. They also attract blister beetles, which I had never ever seen before. Therefore, be careful. (Northern Illinois)
