Beautiful and long lasting perennial! Lots of colour to pick from, fragrant or not, single or many choices! 🙂 It prefers full sun location and fairly drought tolerant. Very easy to grow from seed, if you do grow from seeds, you can expect your seedlings flower next year. With large flowers in summer and fall if keep deadheading. Flowers attract bees and butterflies. Good for cut flower. USDA Zones:4-9.

繽紛亮麗又持久的多年生草花. 超多品種可以選:多種顏色,香味的有無,單瓣或重瓣等好多的選擇啊! 🙂 它喜歡全日照的環境,植株相當耐旱. 很容易用種子繁殖.如果以種子繁殖,隔年就會開花. 摘除謝掉的花朵能從全夏到秋末會一直開花. 花朵吸引蜂蝶是很好的蜜源. 花朵是很好的切花花材.

  1. Question – I managed to keep mine going for about 3 years but gradually lost them (I grew them all from seed), they were in an open site on very dry soil, but I do plant heavily, do you think they don’t like to be overcrowded? Or, could it have been early spring slug damage? Just wondering about your experiences they are such cheery flowers.

    • If you grew from seed, even over seeded but they did grow and flowered once that means crowded plants was not the reason to cause dying down.

      My guess is too dry. I notice they are OK and flowering when few days without watering to certain degree, but you can notice leaves start to dehydrate first than whole plant is dehydrate, in the end whole plant died. Slugs never cause many of them died, but yes they can cause great damage — at least I never seen or heard one case like that can ate many plant.

      Usually natural rainfall can take care of watering for these native wild flowers but once a while dry season will wipe them off — that is why they can produce so many viable seeds with high germination rate. It is nature, unless you would water them during dry days, they do appreciate very much and will flower a lot to repay you! 🙂

      • Thank you so much for that help – I think you are right I do live in one of the driest parts of England. I think I will have another go next year as the seeds did germinate very easily. Thanks again for the advice. Agnes

      • Hi Agnes, Try growing seeds in rainy month that way they germinate quickly and will develop better and deeper root system for better survival during drier month. And remember the native species is more drought tolerant than cultivars! To prevent drying out you can grow them with good coverage ground cover so soil does dry out quickly. Best of luck! — Jane
