Very easy to grow, it will adapt to poor soil. Popular with herbalists. Their comestible leaves and blooms are used in salads. A dye is made from the flowers. The plant possesses an insecticide power, especially when planted along the garden's edge.
A beautiful mix of pastel and buff colours for single and semi-double flowers with sometimes dark or yellow centres.
