Quoted from Mckenzie Seeds:

"A spectacular and easily grown annual producing an abundance of coppery orange, poppy-like flowers, sweetly scented of lily-of-the-valley. Excellent for borders, mass planting and containers, just scatter the seed directly in the garden after the last spring frosts. Height 16in (40cm). Mostly sun, some shade ideal"
