This annual grows to a height of 3 feet(1mtr) and is good for the back border. It is best grown in a group of a few plants. Individually they will need staking. The delicate spidery flowers are continually produced from the main stem until the frost kills it. The seed pods stick out at 90 degrees and are long and thin. This also adds to the spidery nature as the flower spike gradually gets taller. When dry they burst and scatter the seeds. It is a sight to behold especially in a group.
