Showy, colorful blooms with dark centers and sharply pointed petals make this plant a hot garden feature. Easy to grow and drought tolerant.
These hybrid plants are available in a wide array of shades of these basic colors. They often have deeper colored or different colored rings around their darker colored centers. The flowers close at night.
Foliage - Silvery green with wavy or deeply lobed margins.
Grow in sandy, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerates some soil dryness, but prefers consistent moisture. Deadhead spent flowers to encourage additional bloom.
