What are the pros? Beautiful. Strong will to live
What are the cons? Slow, Weak starting
The sweetest, beautiful, little bright orange flower. Absolutely lovely accent in bouquets. Very cheery in the garden. That being said, they were very difficult for me to get going. Slow to germinate, and when they did the plants were little and weak for quite awhile, and not all of them made it (they also got hit with a thunderous rain storm which didnt help). I planted the ones that survived, not thinking they would do well, but after several weeks in the ground, and even after some caterpillars ate all the leaves off some of them, they finally perked up and bloomed all fall, even if the plants did remain a little straggly and thin. Actually the ones that survived were tough little survivors. They would have looked better planted enmasse, or with some fuller plants. I will definitely grow again. The flower is so lovely and sweet.
