Habitat - Cultivated and possibly escaped to dry waste ground of roadsides and railroads.
Origin - Native to Argentina.
Other info. - This little plant is a survivor. I have friends back in Florida that frequently chop the plant up into tiny bits and then spread the pieces along a brick sidewalk. Within days there are new plants coming up everywhere. This is something to keep in mind if you are thinking of planting the plant in your yard.
The flowers are very striking and new colors are always being developed in cultivation. This species is a "bread and butter" plant of local garden centers.
The plant is capable of growing in dry neglected conditions.
