This plant is a gorgeous accompaniment to peonies. It can be repeatedly deadheaded (I do so at least three times a season) for many months of bloom.

It is hardy and nice looking here as long as it has plenty of sun. Dopey "landscapers" put some of them in a corner behind a lilac bush and those got reeeeelly leggy. Will look much better after I move them.

Robust, easy to germinate, rapid growing, winter hardy. I love this plant.
If I had to give a negative attribute (for the purposes of informing interested parties about this plant) I would note that it can get leggy fast. Not a big deal. I just cut it back a little ONCE a season after it blooms. It keeps on growing and blooms more. Wonderful plant.
