What are the pros? Easy to grow, prolific in heat
What are the cons? nothing
These little beauties are fantastic if you're looking for something pretty to bloom all summer and stand up to the heat! I live in North Texas, and first planted these in the midst of what became a very hot summer - hotter than normal (2011). I literally just threw the seeds around my raised beds and lo and behold, they grew quickly and bloomed all summer long. They don't need any fussing, just a bit of water and sun, and bam! You've got blooms until the frost. I love these and plant them every year - they are fantastic! I provide a decorative stake and that helps to train them and keep upright, but it's not necessary.
