This unusual beauty is making a comeback in ornamental and cut-flower gardens for good reason—it’s gorgeous in arrangements and lasts a long time. In the garden, it pairs nicely with bronze and deep-purple or red foliage. The plant is tough, thriving in lean and poor soils, as well as drought conditions and heat. Perennial in USDA zones 8 and warmer, although often grown as an annual. Plants grow to around 16″-32″ tall. Attracts pollinators and is deer resistant.
