Huge blooms sit atop sturdy stems with spiky petals that are a true conversation starter in the summer garden. This mixture blooms in all shades of yellow, orange, red, pink, and white, making it a versatile choice for any garden style. Plant this easy-going annual in the fall for earlier blooms or sprinkle seed on bare soil in the spring once all chance of frost has passed.
