This annual plant grows quickly to form a small conifer shaped bush that during summer is bright green.
Then as it begins to flower it becomes tinged with pink.
When in full bloom, it glows pinky crimson.
I was given a plant a couple of years ago, it self seeds prolifically; this year there are plants all around the garden, I think I put the seeding plants into the compost! But unwanted seedlings are easily removed and they fit well with grasses and Asters so a great addition to the garden. Not many plants of this size actually self seed and become a good size in one season.
