Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recommend these! I planted seeds at least 10 years ago and every year they reseed themselves and come back up. Some years they're thicker than others, but for an "annual", I sure got my money's worth! This year I put some in a large pot for the patio and while they aren't as showy as the plants in the garden bed, I still have a lot of blooms. The hummingbirds love them. The only negative - if it is a negative - is that years with a lot of rain, they'll get 4 plus feet tall and choke out some of my smaller plants.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Challenging After trying two entire packets of this variety, I have only nine plants. Its early in the season, so I don't know how the blooms and foliage are going to turn out yet. I am very disappointed in the germination rate of the seeds I received.
