I adore this little (8-10" tall) annual! The coloration is not done justice in my sunny photo. That is also misleading, in a way, because it is such a full and bushy plant. Usually it is more slender and effective in a group. You must start with 2 specimens, or you will not have any more; it is self-sterile. That plant is floriforous because it was the sole plant and never set seed. Once it has a companion, though, you will have it forever, at least in the rock gardens of Denver. The seed is incredibly fine.
