Beautiful banner, Natalie!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Very pretty Natalie! Thumbs up

One of my favorites. Smiling
Very drought tolerant, and blooms freely.
I love to see these blooming.

Just a caution....also spreads freely by seeds & through the soil.
I let them go one time in a rose garden, and they filled the soil with roots. D'Oh!
Difficult to remove. But great in the right spot.

Great looking bunch, great looking banner!
Sure appreciate the cheerfulness. Smiling
Can you imagine how wonderful these would look with Dirt's Crocus etruscus 'Zwanenburg' (yesterday's banner)?!

Wonderful banner Natalie! I love these.

@EsconditoCal I wish they would take over more at my place. I have 2 small patches of them out in the wildflower fields.

@flaflwrgrl,
what is the soil like? Maybe it's too wet (?)

Have you tried dividing them, and planting around your
place in different spots?

Bet they'd look great in a pot, too.

@Natalie, what are your growing conditions?
Do they grow like a weed there?

They seem to be bulletproof once they find a spot they
like. I cut them back every year. Great plant. Thumbs up

@EsconditoCal
Probably more like not wet enough Cal. A lot of sand here. These days I don't do many "domestic" plantings. These are out in the fields with the other wildflowers I sowed so yes, they were sowed in different spots, lots of different spots.

"not wet enough" ?
Thought you had more water than you knew what to do with in Florida! Green Grin!
I've sowed several packages of seeds (thousands), and they only took
in certain areas. Must need a bit of water to get them established, but
then fairly drought resistant.

Depends on where you are in FL. Yes, true we have lots of swamps but in betwixt is dry, dry sand.
