What are the pros? tons of blooms & seeds
What are the cons? leggy
I got these as they are supposed to be the best for medicinal use. I was a little disappointed at the bloom size, but they bloomed well past when everything else was closing up, and even started re-seeding new volunteers which I took inside to grow in a pot. (They aren't too happy inside, even in front of a window.) The petals keep their color well once dry, so they will be lovely in soaps and such.
It became part of my morning routine to go out every few days and collect the petals from the blooms that had already been pollenated and were starting to wilt, and it took a while since there were so many. They get a big leggy, but they also create vertical interest since they are so tall. I look forward to seeing how many come up from the dropped seeds while I'm starting seeds indoors for the front yard.
