Product Information

Very reliable performer. Early to bloom and  the large double flowers appear freely providing a tall mixture of brightly coloured heads in oranges and yellows. It is an ideal space filler adding great height and colour in the border, and dramatic when mass planted into a large container, especially when companion planted with bright blue flowers.

'Crackerjack' looks spectacular when block planted into a border about 30cm (1ft) apart.

Try the flowers in a salad, they taste of citrus!

Dead-head to keep the flowers coming throught the summer and into autumn.

This half hardy annual will grow to H75cm (30in) x W30cm (1ft) and flower from June to October.

Supplied in a pack of approx. 200 seeds.
