Annual. 6"-12" tall. Full sun. Brilliant orange silky saucer-shaped flowers that look stunning in mass plantings and wildflower areas! Flowers are open in their full glory in the sun, but will close during cloudy days or if placed in the shade. Drought-tolerant. Does well in hot, dry areas once established. Pinching off spent flowers prolongs bloom period. Can be used as a cut flower if cut in the bud stage, though foliage often over winters in other areas. Reseeds easily. Native American wildflower and the State Flower of California.
