The Seed Savers Exchange -Sitting above its silvery, highly cut foliage, the striking, purple-petaled flowers of this easy-to-grow annual are followed later in the season by attractive seed pods that can be used in dried arrangements. At the season’s end, the seeds in the pods can be harvested and used for baking or replanting. All plant parts except the seeds are toxic. Prolific self-sowing annual, 2-3' tall.
