Despite its African Roots, this drought-tolerant annual plant has been commonly naturalized in the United States. From seeding to blooming, the plant takes about 55 days and produces 2-inch large orange, salmon, and white flowers.
They make excellent cut flowers, but in the garden or bouquet, they will close at night.
The flake seed is formed by the ray flowers, also known as the petals, which are located on the outside of the flower head. Good enough to make informal gardens.
