So Gorgeous!
Suzanne Denver from CO wrote on February 15, 2020

I planted these where I had to hand water them, and never showed any water stress. First blossom is in the center, and then a ring a big side blossoms open up. Keeps blooming until frost. A bit fat for a cut flower (it can dominate a short arrangement), but still works well.

I haven't seen the blossoms yet but the foliage is beautiful. Is a good ornamental.

What a selection!

I'm so pleased with the seed selection--many I have been looking for, but have been unable to find someone who sells them as seeds not just plants!
