I agree

They tend to be reasonably hardy and you can pick up cultivars from lots of places (such as Bunnings or your local nursery).

I have a couple as pot plants and my neighbour has one in the garden bed. In Melbourne they have quite a long bloom season. The main "use" would be for colour in the garden. I haven't tried them as cut flowers, but I imagine that would work well, since they can be propagated from cuttings.
