|A hardy, erect annual requiring
very little moisture once established. A native of Mexico, it can easily adapt to all
regions of the United States. The attractive flowers are a mixture of stunning deep
crimson, soft pink and pure white. Leaves are deeply dissected, almost threadlike in
appearance. Rich, fertile soils tend to produce extremely tall, lanky plants. Requires
full sun. Sow in early spring, seedlings are not winter hardy. A real value for the money.
