Godetias are Gorgeous

Ah godetias, how do I love thee?
Godetias are one of my favorite annuals, with one plant having a tight cluster of flowers so that it is, in fact, a bouquet.
I like the godetias with two tone petals of pink and rose, or of rose and white. There are also all white godetias and all pink. Spring is an ideal time to find some started in your local plant store.
These flowers like sun.
I had trouble remembering their name, until I realized the name starts with the word "God", and now it is easy to remember. When in the plant store, just tell the nursery worker I want the flower that starts out "God".
