Little rays of brilliance
First time I grew these and am glad I did. They are lovely, withstand heat, and have been blooming for over a month. Was pleasantly surprised they do not flop over on their narrow delicate stems. Nice as a cut flower.
Whimsical yet Elegant
Lovely flowers and easy to grow! The colors are scarlet, orange and tips of yellow within the same bloom. They have a very different look depending on how the light hits them. Very elegant as they slowly undulate in the breeze. I highly recommend!

Easy to grow, fun cut flower. Transplanted well from indoor starter. Planning to start fewer this summer because they were very robust and expanded more than anticipated.
