Perhaps the easiest of the “rainbow plants” to grow, this species reaches an average of 5-10 inches tall, covered in filiform leaves about 2-4 inches long and the entire plant coated in sticky glands. Plants will produce one or two flowers at a time, each with delicate narrow lavender-violet petals and bright yellow anthers in the middle. A self-pollinating species unlike most of the others, this annual will re-seed itself (though it can also be re-established through stem cuttings).

Packets contain 30+ seeds each. This species does not require special treatment to germinate, but faster and more reliable results are found with GA3 or smokewater soaks, and they grow best in wet, hot conditions with strong light but will tolerate a wide range of conditions.
