This is a mixture of very striking colours. They range from sizzling hot pink to dark  burgundy, red, orange, yellow, white, green, and every bright combination you could think of . The plants are tall ,  sometimes reaching about 2.2 m.

The seed heads make wonderful fillers for bouquets and they are excellent cut flowers , as well as being striking in the border , and of course the seed is edible.
