This is a very compact plant. The blooms are nestled among the foliage. In our cooler temps, the foliage takes on a reddish hue that is quite appealing, as well. I am hoping it will behave as a short-lived perennial here, rather than an annual.

Sold as an annual but really a short lived perennial in my experience-it usually lasts two or three years in my zone 4a garden. Profuse bloomer and I haven't noticed that it is subject to insect pests or disease. The listed bloom time is correct if you don't deadhead regularly. In containers it continued to bloom from late spring until frost when deadheaded on a daily basis.
