    I love these flowers, but I’ve never figured out how to make it look good in my garden. Great photo!

    Oh my gosh, that is gorgeous! I wonder if they grow in my part of the country.

      Yes, they do. They are annuals. You can grow them from seed or get them already started at the garden center. They love sun and grow about 3 feet high.

    What a beautiful specimen. Did you plant those or did it grow wild?

      A little of both. A few years ago I bought them at the garden center. I saved the seeds and started them indoors the next year. However, I found they will seed themselves and return in the same place on their own. So this year I let them plant themselves. And they don’t need a lot of water or maintenance.

    It looks lovely, and thankfully nothing like a spider. 🙂
