I live in Mesa, Arizona and grew this plant from seed, which I received inside a packet of wildflower seed. It produced wonderfully.

I purchased this plant at the end of last summer and it hasn't been out of flower since (it is now mid April), keeping up an endless succession throughout the winter, even when snow was on the ground.
It has a lovely soft orange colour - quite unusual.
