        • I liked this plant but it was a bit too high maintenance for me. Required a LOT of water. If allowed to dry out, the flower stalks will collapse and can't be fixed. As the summer tends to dry out, it becomes more and more attention hungry, requiring watering multiple times a day. I found the Prince Tut to be better suited for my style of gardening (containers). The flowers were shorter, but didn't have to bear the extra weight and therefore didn't fall over if allowed to get too dry.

        • I bought these last year from here, and I must say I was truly impressed with the size and the packing, Just wonderful. I have used King Tut for the past 5 or so years in Large planters and just love the look it gives. Last year I could not find locally so I bought from here and will continue to buy from here rather than look elsewhere as these were much better plants than I had gotten anywhere else and there was no wait time for the plants to recover like I have had in the past with other vendors. A great experience with Proven Winners. Thank You So Much.

        • Contrary to most reviews, our King Tut is beginning its third season in our garden after the last two winters indoors with us. I will admit it's not thriving but we have divided into two pots this spring and expect with more room to see it produce many more shoots this summer.

        • I love this plant by itself and in large container gardens. Always part of my planting plan.

        • This is a very unique plant, it is quite a show piece. You need to keep it staked up if you have a lot of wind.

        • I purchased this plant in a grouping pot. Loved it all season. Just wish it would winter over in my area. It does produce seed so I am going to try to harvest some seed to plant next season. A great eye catcher in the garden.

        • Bought this "Proven Winner" for my balcony (southern exposure).. Exceptional plant that will grow tall enough to provide some screening for privacy on balcony. Easy care plant compared to other annuals, however I do use spiral stakes to help keep some of the floppier stalks upright. (the spikey heads of the stalks can be quite large and pull stalks over somewhat) This is one funky looking plant and everyone who passes by likes it and asks what it is. I consider the $12.99 I paid for it in the spring to be THE BEST BUY this season. Be sure to give it a BIG pot as I had to repot after only one month....vigorous grower.(it is mid July and mine is already 5 feet tall) We have just had a major heat wave and this plant showed no signs of stress or damage. I will be sure to purchase this plant again every year for my balcony.
