Extraordinary annual flower growing up to 80 cm tall.
Black Swan is too gorgeous to tuck away in a menagerie of other flowers. Sow it along a path you frequent, in a bed near your deck or patio, or in a large container where you can watch its richly colored 8-12 cm semi-double blossoms unfurl from full pods on graceful, curved, swan-like necks.
Savor its intricate, finely cut petals that are as dark as a fine cabernet. Harvest them for exquisite bouquets or simply enjoy the show!
