Very easy, beautiful flower. Loves the sun and heat.

Ordered this from an internet shop and sowed the seeds among some wildflowers and alongside Amaranthus Caudatus, (Love Lies Bleeding) in an old rose bed. The Prince's Feather grew easily, reaching a height of three feet within 6 to 8 weeks. Sun exposure was from noon on, with heavy watering during a rare Oregon heat wave (Willamette Valley area.) It wilted fast during this period unless watered. The plant is beginning to dry out now, late September, so I will collect the seeds and try them again next spring. Beautiful plant and an instant conversation piece. I highly recommend this plant if you'd like something different with a deep burgandy color.
