What a flower show! California Giants are true to their name, growing to 4-6” across in a rainbow of colors. Blooms last a long time in both the garden and the vase, and also dry very well. Perfect as a fill-in in the perennial border, or in a bed of their own to provide constant color through the summer. The more you cut, the more they bloom! Avoid watering leaves to prevent powdery mildew. The huge flowers attract pollinators and are deer-resistant.
