This is the perfume jar of the flower garden, a single plant in bloom filling the whole atmosphere around it with its delicate fragrance.
It is a well know, hardy annual about 1 foot high, producing its flowers on spikes from 3 to 6 inches long.
It is one of the most popular annuals grown. No garden should be without it.
If sown at intervals during spring and early summer, it will be in constant bloom till killed by frost.'
