What are the pros? Bees/butterflies LOVE it
What are the cons? None
I bought a packet of these seeds from BCHS in 2012 and planted them in a large pot on my back porch. Just scattered the seeds and watered them in. That first year they came up and made really pretty dark green, healthy looking leaves but no flowers. I was a little disappointed and over the year forgot about them. The next spring these little green plants started coming up in the pot and within a couple of month the pot was FULL of the most beautiful 2 to 3 foot tall plants with over 20 bright flowers. Every year since I've had a pot full of blooms (except in 2016, just greenery and no flowers, not sure why). As I type this review there are butterflies and bees all over them again this year. I normally dead head them once the flowers fade but I think I will leave some on the plant this year to mature and collect seed to start a bed in the yard somewhere. Be sure you don't keep the soil too wet. I only water if I see the leaves starting to droop a little.
