This is a vigorous bushy, spreading annual with finely divided blue-green leaves and showy orange, yellow or sometimes red flowers in summer. Once established in a hot garden these will self-seed, coming up reliably year after year.
For best results, seeds are sown directly into the ground where required in the spring. Alternatively, sow in late winter/early spring in gentle warmth, 15-20 degrees C. Prick out into small 3 inch or 7 cm. pots and plant in final position when the plants are established.
