Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never did grow, just dried up and blew away! I thought this was awfully expensive for what I got. Terrible

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lean on information Well whoever wrote this ad needs to kindly add a description of the plant that Burpee is Size-height, etc. Not what the plant turns into. Also I don't think this plant is annual as it doesn't die off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful & Dramatic Plant Although it took a while for this plant to take off in my Zone 5 garden, they are absolutely fabulous now (early autumn)! Mine have grown to about 4 1/2 - 5 feet, and have been terrific performers, adding much-needed color and dimension to my garden. I will definitely purchase these next year!
