We've grown this annual once, and I managed to snap its photo when I first noticed it in bloom that year. Shortly after that, it just seemed to disappear. In a next attempt, I'll try to keep closer track of it. Certainly, the bicolor flowers on upright plants are a worthy addition to the early-summer garden.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
