Description

For a knock out love letter, use your Chocolate Lace Flowers to make your own ink! Here's how: Collect and dry petals from about 5 flowers. Toss into a mortal and pestle, and grind to a powder. Add a tiny bit of boiling water, just enough to cover the powder and mix. Leave in a sunny spot in your house for 24 hours. Strain with a coffee filter or cheesecloth, and voila. Get a fine brush and write/paint away. Includes 3 young plants.

How to Plant

Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Fill a little bit of the loose dirt back into the hole and tuck your plant in so the base of the stem is even with the top of the hole. Now fill in the rest of the soil around the roots, give the soft ground around the base of your new plant friend a few solid pats to compress the soil onto the roots, and a long, gentle drink of water.

Where to Plant

Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, in well draining soil.

When to Plant

Avoid the heat of the day when planting — plant in the early morning, late afternoon, or by the light of the moon. Plant outside after your average last frost in the spring.

When to Expect Blooms

All summer long.

Care Instructions

Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells.  Pick blooms to encourage more. 

Extra Credit

Lace Flower is in the same family as Queen Anne's Lace and will readily self seed in poor soil if left to go to seed.
