This little annual outperforms most in my garden. It blooms early and keeps on going all season long. It comes in many colors...and is easy to start from seed.
It does well in containers and in the front of a border garden.

Beautiful wildflower that prefers sandy soil. Usually in red, pink, white, or lavender colors. The leaves and stems are soft, hairy, and slightly sticky. There are a number of subspecies and a hybrid of two of these are sold in the nursery trade.
