Comments on Article[edit]

Recommendations and opinions (advice) are not facts and are, therefore, inconsistent with the format of this encyclopedia.

The statement "In temperate climates, sow seed in spring for blooms that last throughout the summer and well into the fall", however worded as a 'how-to' recommendation, contains the fact: "In temperate climates, seeds sown in spring produce blooms that last throughout the summer and well into the fall"[1], and could/should be re-worded as such. "In areas of little winter freezing (USDA zones 8-11), sow seeds in autumn for winter color, plants will wither in subtropical summer" can be correctly re-worded as "In areas of little winter freezing (USDA zones 8-11), seeds may be sown in autumn for winter color; plants will wither in subtropical summer"[1].

Likewise, "It is recommended to deadhead (removal of dying flower heads) the plants regularly to maintain even blossom production" contains the fact: "Deadheading (removal of dying flower heads) the plants regularly maintains even blossom production"[1].

The statement "Be advised not to plant in vegetable gardens" is strictly an opinion, and should, therefore, be removed.

"Pharmacology" and "Constituents" are redundant and should be combined for more cohesive analysis.

INFUSION[edit]

Hello,

I understand that you can not make an essential oil from this plant, instead it's ingredient type would be "INFUSION" and the Extraction Method - INFUSION. Can someone help me to understand this?

Thank you so much, CainO'
