This cockscomb has grown for me in a deck railing planter that got broiling Southern summer sun. No disease or insect problems. Humidity tolerant, drought tolerant and easy to collect and save the seed for the following year. The young leaves, shoots and young flowers can be cooked and eaten. It does need moderate moisture to thrive. I like this one a lot.
