It has a bushy growth habit and branches freely. In areas where you get cool nights it blooms freely with clusters of bright pink flowers. Medora is very easy to grow, and can be used as a bedding plant with your other annuals. It gets about 2 to 2 ½ feet tall. Grow it as a back ground plant in beds or it makes a beautiful hanging basket.
