Cultivation

Prefers a poor sandy soil and a sunny position[2][1] but is easily grown in an ordinary garden soil[3]. Succeeds in a hot dry position. Plants grow well in maritime climates[1]. A very ornamental plant, it is commonly grown in the flower garden and there are many named varieties[1]. This plant is the state flower of California[4]. Although a perennial it is usually quite short-lived and is more often grown as an annual in this country[5][6]. It can tolerate temperatures down to about -10°c, however, and often survives mild winters[5]. If the dead flowers are removed before they set seed the plant will continue flowering for a longer period[7]. A polymorphic species[8]. Plants resent root disturbance and should be sown in situ[1]. The flowers are very attractive to bees[2]. They close during wet or overcast weather[6]. Plants often self-sow if the soil is disturbed by some means such as hoeing[1].
