Western American desert native grows 1–1 1/2 ft. tall, displaying inch-wide flowers above gray-green foliage. The basic bloom period is spring through fall, but year-round bloom is possible in low desert and other mild-winter areas if plants receive periodic moisture. Sow seed in fall or spring, rake in, and water thoroughly. Keep moist until seeds sprout, then reduce watering to once or twice weekly. Thin to 1 1/2 ft. apart. To prolong bloom, water every week or two. Self-sows.
Tight, dense, spherical red-purple flower clusters top 2-ft. stems in summer. Spreads freely.
