Have had for 3 or 4 years, took a while to get going, (plus I moved once),but they are hardy, even if I don't water them much. I only have a few spikes, not at all bushy like the picture- more wild looking as they grow. The color is a light purple, not anything close to red. The floweres last long. I would say if you don't mind waiting, and like a natural cottage feel, get some since they are kind of tall and add some charm and interest as they pop up.

Called Gurney's last year because the color did not match what I ordered, which was red. Mine bloomed a light lavender. Gurney was gracious and sent a replacement order last fall. Again, this summer, I still don't have carmine red blooms, instead they are a purple. The foliage is nice, but if you want red blooms, do NOT order this item. You will be disappointed like me.

This plant is NOT red, but a light pink/lavendar. They are pretty, just be warned. Also, my plants grow to about 40+ inches tall - so plant in the back of your beds. If you are in a windy area the stalks will fall over and turn brown. Make sure to clip the stalks after they are done blooming and they'll rebloom.

These flowers are not red. They are light purple. I planted them anyway. We'll see.

Carmine flowers ? Not at all !

I just bought 2 plants as it was the first time I ordered from Gurney's and didn't know what to expect. Well, the flowers are light purple without a trace of carmine. The picture in the catalog is deceiving.
