Review:

I grew these in a south-facing flower bed by direct sowing in late May. I had to water them occasionally, but they were generally easy to care for. They were HUGE. 5 feet tall, maybe 6. I had to tie them to my porch to keep them off the sidewalk. Red blooms would fade a bit to a more orangey color with age, but lasted a long time. Blooms varied in form from puffy dahlia-like to singles. I planted the whole packet and got one bright pink flowering plant, so heads up for that. Overall, really fun to grow.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
