The weak point for these flower seeds is packaging. Come packed in small transparent plastic bags, with no reference image and with no instructions or information about how to plant or take care of them. Nothing you won't solve with a Google search, but far from other beautifully branded options in the market.

These seeds are an annual mix but in many zones will return due to dropped seeds. They grow 6-18 inches and prefer full sun exposure, so great for places with high temperatures. It can be a perfect gift of beauty to your family or friends. Take into account that if you have any pets, you will need to keep them safe from these flowers, which can be harmful.
