Ratings & Reviews
This is a gorgeous flower and quickly became a favorite of mine. All the seeds I planted grew, and they did really well in pots. I got a lot of compliments on them - since they were outside my front door. The center of the flower is unique, and I loved the green-silvery color of the foliage, which reminded me a little bit of some varieties of lavender. They lasted a long time too - blooming up through Holloween and into November.

Permanent addition to my garden!
Tried these for the first time last year and they're a new favorite. Mine took a few weeks to germinate so make sure you start them inside early. Not much spread so plant a lot! Thrived in the hot, dry months. Centers are unlike anything I've seen. Bloomed all summer and fall! Zone 5A
