I got a few plants many years ago. Here in Southeast Texas we call them Bachelor Buttons. They are a wonderful addition to any hot, sunny spot and survives dought with some help. I allow the flowers to dry then broadcast them not even bothering with covering with soil. They come up easily and add a wonderful spot of color.
