This plant is attractive to bees, butterflies and/or birds. A pretty mix of colours.
Self-sows freely; deadhead if you do not want volunteer seedlings next season.

Succeeds in any reasonably good soil. Grows well in heavy clay soils. Prefers a moist well-drained humus rich soil in a cool site. Another report says that this species requires warm, moist conditions. Succeeds in sun or semi-shade.

Plants are not frost hardy, but can be grown outdoors in Britain by sowing the seed in a greenhouse and planting out after the last expected frosts.

Sow spring in a greenhouse. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and plant them out in the summer.

 Edible uses

Leaves and young shoots - cooked. (People with a tendency to rheumatism, arthritis, gout, kidney stones and hyperacidity should take especial caution if including this plant in their diet. Regular ingestion of large quantities of these plants can be dangerous due to their high mineral content ).

Seed - raw or cooked. They are difficult to collect in quantity, mainly because of their exploding seed capsules which scatter the ripe seed at the slightest touch.
