Fabulous!
Ellen from MN wrote on July 09, 2012

I live in Minnesota, and we get COLD winters and very warm summers. Planting these from seed last year was SO easy and I even got a few blooms. This year they're gorgeous! They are definately a showstopper when in bloom, so make sure to plant them where they can be shown off and not blend into other extremely showy plants. Mine had a nice bacdrop of peonies which were done blooming-they nicely stood out. I can't wait to plant more!

Compact Plant with Lots of Bright Blooms

I grew these from seed last year and have them planted in full sun with little supplemental watering in the hot, humid Southeast and am pleased with the results. The plants are short and compact for blanket flowers, and bloom prolifically starting in late April here. They are a great addition for the front of my planting beds.

In zone 9A it virtually dies in the summer
Judy from FL wrote on January 04, 2012

I think that it is a little too hot and humid for this plant. The base of the plant rots. Great flowers September thru June. Tolerated Floridas couple of freezes and continues blooming. The yellow (which is no longer available) isn't affected by the summer heat and humidity.
