The beautiful flowers are prolific and grow from 70 cm to 1.2 m tall.

Plant the seedsany time from mid to late autumn.  The seeds can be sown shallowly in pots or trays indoors and can take 30 - 90 days to germinate so be patient with them because the wait is very worth while.

Plant the seedlings about 30 cm apart in the garden once they reach12-15cm tall.

Because they grow tall you can make great use of them by planting alongside walls or in amongst leafy plants such as fernswhich they will rise above in a splash of colour.
