What are the pros? pollenator, easy to grow
What are the cons? eventually flops over
Larger than expected plant. It will fall over at some point if it gets large enough - letting them grown in small clusters seems to help a little though they still will flop eventually if big enough.
Self-seeding and you may need to be careful about it taking over the garden a bit - but plucking the new shoots aren't a big deal. Very tough to kill - can weather a couple of light frosts, and I mowed some of them over as they started growing in the grass border of the garden in summer, and it just kept coming back.
The best thing is that the bees absolutely LOVE the flowers and it continues to draw them until frosty weather. I let these plants stay in the garden in sporadic clusters just for this.
Put this in or around your garden! Especially if you want to draw/support more bees.
