What are the pros? Flowers are beautiful
What are the cons? too big for spot planted
I will plan their planting spot better next year, they were very vigorous! and got up to 8-10 feet tall!! They did suffer some damage from heavy rains & hail, but even with bent stems still kept on flowering. Had 6 Monarch butterflies dancing over the flowers all summer, and 4 kinds of bees - 2 tiny ones, honey and big fuzzy bubbles. I will plant them again and give them some support. Saved seeds and shared with some friends, the silly squirrels liked eating the prickly seed pods. When the frost takes them, they dry out and are fairly easy to break up to clean up the garden before winter, just watch out for the prickly seed pods.
