Annual. What a fun flower to grow! 2"-4" striped and speckled blooms in cheery colors are delightful in the garden, and tabletop arrangements. No two are alike! Easy to grow, heat-loving plants supply beauty and interest to your flowerbeds, containers, and borders until fall frost. Each individual flower lasts a very long time on the plant and in the vase.
Deer resistant.
