This has all of what I like about tickseed (the lacy foliage) and none of what I don't like (yellow flowers). I love the pink! Mine's a rosy pink that looks lovely next to the purple anise hyssop and the cheddar pinks. Deadhead for longer blooming.

Bought a Heaven's Gate last year and it was about 18" tall and full of flowers. This year it came back and is three thirty inch tall stems with barely any leaves. The leaves turned yellow and died so I thought it was a gonner. Checked yesterday though and it appears to be growing new leaves where the old ones died and it's got buds on it. It's not going to be pretty but I'm rooting it on.

I've had two of these for a few years without winter protection... Hardy to zone 4. Mine tend to get tall and flop, so I support them w/ short tomato cages.

I like this Plant's "airiness" ~ Very Soft
Nice Ferny Foliage that is quickly covered in Summer with the Pink Flowers.
