What are the pros? Late fall highlight
What are the cons? Late bloomer
I bought this because of the cool photo in the catalog. I didn't even have a place in mind for them. This is very easy to grow, with a very high germination rate. For the longest time I thought they were just kind of plain.. I had all these plants so I stuck them in here and there where there was space behind other plants, and kept some in pots in a utility area of the yard. I transplanted them to the grass/perennial garden when there were gaps- they have no problem with being moved. Finally, in late September they bloomed, and they were spectacular.! They are excellent with ornamental grasses and provided color, structure, and interest when other flowers were sprawling and fading. They were great though October and into November. I now consider these a must-have for the fall garden.
