This plant struggled from day one regardless of how much attention it received. It just burned like crazy here in my garden in North Texas. We had a very hot and dry summer that started in May with no relief from the heat. I never got to see the beautiful flowers that were pictured. I'm crossing my fingers that next year will bring flowers and beautiful foliage.

This was such a delightful surprise in our small urban raised bed. Easy to grow, little maintenance required, and vibrant color on sturdy stems. The centres of the flower seem to almost glow golden and fade to fuschia. A little late to bloom but when it did it was lovely.M&S, Nova Scotia, Canada, 3 years ago
