Glorious gobs of palm-sized super double to semi-double blooms of rich orange quilled petals make a sumptuous show from early Spring thru Summer in coastal CA. To 2’x2’, this heirloom varietyis one of the easiest hardy annuals you can grow and a radiant showstopper in rich, well-drained soil. Hotter areas: cut back to 6” in Summer for a second round of bloom. A great long-blooming container fellow (10+ gal.) and edible, too, the petals can be used to ornament salads. Self-sows for fresh new plants every Spring. Deer resistant!
