Very easy to grow; adaptable to poor soil. Popular with herbalists. Leaves and blooms can be used in salads. A dye is made from the flowers. The plant possesses an insecticide power, especially when planted along the garden's edge.
This variety wears very nice ultra double flowers with densely set deep orange petals edged in burgundy. It gives a wonderful glowing effect in landscapes or bouquets.
