This plant looked fantastic when I ordered it and when I initially planted. Are you supposed to dead head it?
After about a week to ten days it died right down to the ground.
What could I have done wrong? Any suggestions?

This plant is native to Europe. In England, where 'corn' generally means wheat, Corn Cockle was a weed in grain fields. Before the advent of machine harvesting the separation of the poisonous seeds from the wheat was a tedious procedure.

I grew a white cultivar of corn cockles several years ago in my mountaintop garden in the Catskills . I found it easy, although a bit late to flower in my short season garden. It did not self seed. The plants grew about a foot tall, and were pleasant in a meadow-like way.

Hardy Annual. This makes a great cottage garden selection. Grows to a height of 3 feet and bears large, soft pink flowers in the summer. Fast growing plants with lance-shaped leaves will need support with stakes. Seeds are poisonous. Deadhead (remove faded flowers) to prolong flowering and encourage new flower buds. This annual reseeds easily.
This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
Grass Valley, California
Long Beach, California
Los Angeles, California
San Marino, California
Santa Clara, California
West Kill, New York
