Initial Notes:4" Annie's Annuals: One of the coolest plants we can grow here on the West Coast! Otherwordly conical clusters of glistening reddish pink flowers can reach 8’ & will certainly get your garden noticed! Deer proof, bug proof and totally drought tolerant “Tower of Jewels” seems not to care about anything but looking stupendous! Usually blooms in year 2 but in the meantime you get an impressive 30” across foliar rosette. Adored by hummers and self-sows for years of enjoyment! Poor dry soil ok but not clay.
