A good bedding plant, this bushy annual from Southeast Asia reaches a height of up to 24 in (60 cm).
It has oval, hairy leaves and produces flowerheads in shades of pink, purple, yellow, orange or white .
These papery, pompon-like flowerheads are attractive when dried: cut flowering stems just before blooms are fully open and hang upside down in a cool, well-ventilated place until dry.
Cultivation: They require a sunny position, reasonably fertile, well-drained soil and plenty of water during active growth.
The plants benefit from mulching in hot weather.
Propagate from seed .
