Review:

These were included in a wildflower seed mix, and years later they showed up. While pretty, I am having a hard time getting rid of them, as they take over!

What are the pros? full sun, partial shade

What are the cons? extremely cold winters.

Review:

They reseed themselves if prolific. They act as a biennial in northern climes if winters are not extremely cold. I would reccomend as an easy flower to grow. Thumbs up!!!

Review:

Good Germination, I sprinkled them on soil and watered them in when day temps were around 70, in long narrow containers between brick wall of house and brick patio ( that should take care of the self seeding issue, I hope). They get bright filtered light most of the day, about 2 hours of direct hot sun. We had a sudden very hot,( heat index 100-105) very dry spring and summer, but they did fine, as long as I watered when soil went dry ( as container plants tend to do). Pinched off the short infestation of mealy bugs, with no problem. I like the colors, I found you can tip prune to get bushier plants. The trick now will be to overwinter in the containers, but I suspect I could treat them as a long lived annual till hard freeze. I will be buying more for areas where self seeding is not a problem. They seem to be pretty carefree.

Review:

I planted two of these not knowing what they were. They are gorgeous but will self seed and are very hard to "remove" if you change your mind.
