Planting & Growing

Garden Confetti Rayflower will grow to be about 3 feet tall at maturity extending to 5 feet tall with the flowers, with a spread of 3 feet. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.

It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.
