Just an annual in Central FL. However these are the first to go into my flower pots in the early spring, can tolerate pretty cool temperatures. They last quite a long time, I cut them back and get a second blooming in mid summer. After July they die out, the sun just gets too hot and the rain too much. But well worth their beauty in the spring.
