Lovely, nearly black flowers are perfect for the old-fashioned cottage garden. This rare heirloom was listed in Buist’s 1942 catalog. Colorful and unique.

What are the pros? Super easy

What are the cons? Differing color year-to-year

Review:

Planted a few two years ago and got the lovely dark purple color with silvery foliage. Dropped the seeds and literally forgot about them, and they did magnificently in full sun and mulched soil. The next year, I had so many volunteers come up that I didn't need to re-seed! While they do come up readily, they are also not hard to pull up if one shows up where it shouldn't...very short root system, and in mulched loose soil it was a breeze to pick and choose. However, the second crop came up a bit brighter purple this year, with some almost magenta. Still very pretty, just different. Bees and insects love these and had a ton of goldfinches come through last month to pick off the dried seedheads. I think I am going to try planting along my fence next year as these grow super dense and block out the weeds. They do fall over at the end of the season, so they may need some support to keep them looking nice.

Review:

I grew these this year for my son's wedding. They were beautiful! Little did I know the bride was going to rip them out by the roots and then cut them! Big surprise! Managed to save enough seed for next year!

Review:

Planted some of these along with polka dot mix and blue boy varieties. All came up fast, and flowered profusely from mid june to present (sept). Still going although plants have become a little rangy after initial blooms and more prostrate as subsequent thunderstorms have flattened them the past few weeks. No complaints that aren't the fault of weather. Very good in the Midwest.

I love these! They have been flowering non-stop for weeks and look fabulous in front of my knee-high white cosmos. Also a great combination with orange and yellow flowers.
