A tender perennial best grown as an annual. Plants have bright lilac-violet flowers with strong stems with the flowers grouped together into terminal clusters. Blooms well the first year. Showy plants best used in a mass effect. Growing best in poor soils, otherwise plants will be very tall (up to 4.5 feet). Self sows where open ground is available in the spring. This rapid-growing, clump-forming tender perennial has a distinctive look and puts on a showy display in the border. The best display of these long blooming plants occurs when they are used in groups in a sunny location with moist but well draining soils.
