The are highly decorative plants for any well drained soil in a sunny spot, most will grow well even in very dry spots in the garden. Large spikes with a rose-colored (rarely white) inflorescence. Dried seed pots are very attractive and a nutrition source for seed loving wild birds.
Sow throughout the year in any soil. Will germinate in late spring to early summer. Very easy and will readily self-sow in a suited spot. Transplant as soon as seedlings are strong enough.
