A compact annual growing up to about 30 cm high. It has long, linear leaves.
It flowers 3-4 months after sowing - June to September. Flowers are up to 3-4 cm in diameter, color mixed.
This is a popular plant for its very colorful display in massed plantings. It is suited to most temperate areas and prefers well drained soils in a sunny position.
Responds well to any general fertilizer and regular watering - which may be once a week to once a day depending on soil type and daily temperature. You can cut plants back and they will flower again.
Although the plants are adaptable and hardy, there are a few factors that limit their growth. Heavy, clay soils lead to smaller plants and a lack of sun makes them weak and spindly. Seedlings can be damaged by frosts.
