Comments: This is an excellent flowering annual that is reported to do especially well in areas with high rainfall. It blooms in spring but will continue to bloom until there is a moisture stress. It is well adapted for seasonal color beds, the cottage garden and other places where a strong upright growing annual is needed. Provide full sunlight for this annual.
