The blooms open in the morning and usually disappear by midday; the handsome foliage provides a beautiful presence whether the blooms are open or not. Sun (especially if the soil is moist) to partial shade. Annual in most areas (the plants often self-sow); perennial in frost-free climates.

Collected in September and October 2020. At least 15 seeds.
