Gardeners' Notes:

I have several colors, including fuscia, not listed
in the details. This plant is a perennial for me, surviving
with flowers encased in ice. This plant grows well in my
alkaline soil. Little care is needed.

These little gems bloom in only 6 weeks from seed. They are actually classified as a hardy biennial.

A brilliant low filler that readily reseeds itself. I quit trimming it up and it stil does well in about three hours midday sun and minimum water.
