Blooms continuously from early summer through fall. Best planted in masses of one color in beds, rock gardens, containers or hanging baskets. Can withstand high temperatures and bright sunlight. Most varieties close up in later afternoon or on cloudy days. Requires low water but critical to have plenty of water in the first two weeks. If too much water, plants will get stringy and thin roots. No pests.
