Beautiful plant and lovely flowers. Can reach a height of up to 5'. Foliage is very attractive and flowers are long-lasting. It is not picky about soil conditions and grows in sunny to partly shady areas. Self-seeds VERY easily, so it can become invasive. It also will grow from even the smallest scrap of root, so be careful where you plant it.
