Plants are 20 cm tall, with very branched stems from the base. The flowers are almost odorless, single, double, of various colors (red, white and different shades of pink; with or without a spot at the base of the petals), 4-7 cm in diameter. Propagated by seeds; more often grown by seedlings. Friendly shoots appear in 4-7 days. Seedlings dive in 3-4 weeks; over the 5th pair of leaves of the plant, they pinch. Hardened seedlings are planted in the ground. The plants are cold-resistant (they tolerate frosts up to -3°C), light-loving and sufficiently drought-resistant (when the soil dries, abundant watering is necessary). They grow well in sunny places, on light, moisture-permeable, fertile calcareous soils. In order for the plants to branch well and bloom abundantly, they need to be fed with a full mineral fertilizer (1-2 times when growing seedlings and another 2-3 times in the flower garden). They are used on flower beds, cuttings and for cutting. After 1 frost, especially valuable plants can be dug up and transplanted into pots – flowering will continue until mid-November.
