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.
