Yes, I wouldn't want them in a very refined garden as they tend to get top heavy, and spill. My tallest ones were about 7 foot.

Pretty in your garden, nothing like that red. I'm going to move them to the back of the garden in the fall.

Oh, and when you move them, you might want to take any old corms off. They grow like glads, one corm on top of another, like a vertical chain, and if you take off just the top one to keep that would be good.

Very Pretty Polly. I have a plant that was on the property I purchased it has not spread and the deer love it so I do not get to see very much of the plant.

I enjoyed looking at your plant. Thanks for reminding me how pretty it can be.

Thank you! It would probably be a good idea for me to put some support around it.

I have Lucifer but this year, not so many blooms. I also planted orange ones but just the leaves came up and then the rabbit was eating the leaves. Angry No blooms so I guess I have to wait till next year.

Yes, it work great on rabbits. You hook it to the end of your hose, and move it around where you need it. I have had no, zero. zip, critter damage since I've had it. it might seem a little expensive, but think of it vs the cost of animal repellants for 3 years or more.

Go on Amazon, and look at Contech Scarecrow. I've tried to link to it, but it may take you back to the Amazon home page.
