What are the pros? self-sows, pollinators love it
What are the cons? not a good cut flower
I planted these probably five years ago in one of my vegetable gardens and I have yet to plant them again. They self-sow extremely well and could be looked at as a weed--only, that is, if you don't like a beautiful sea of yellow and orange flowers with pollinators buzzing all over the place. I let the volunteers grow all over my garden and simply pull up the ones in the way. They are not at all invasive. I plant A LOT of varieties of flowers to grow among my vegetables and this is is the most profusely blooming and the best-looking for the longest time. The only downside is that they are not a good cut flower. If you are looking for an upright grower that will bloom and bloom without any care whatsoever and attracts bees and butterflies from far and wide, get this flower.
