I'd never seen these before, but picked up a pack of the seeds at the supermarket. I'm amazed by what is blooming in my yard at this time. The blooms are enormous and showy. They even smell good (subtle). A sturdy plant.

Grew these in containers on a sunny balcony. Very enjoyable! Eye catching and long lasting blooms. Would grow again. We're relatively drought resistant too.
