Suitable for cut flowers - if you want to achieve longer stems and earlier blooms it is best planted in autumn and "over-wintered" in a greenhouse or similar, as it needs protections from frosts. But sown in early spring it can be grown as an annual, but protect with cloche or something similar to avoid any rogue frosts or particularly bad cold spells.
