Don't under-estimate these stout, fluttery little friends. They are tough as old boots. Frost tolerant, heat tolerant, super hardy, and can even take a trampling. They are the go-to flower for when its too early or too late in the season for all other outdoor flowers, and we are their biggest fans.

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 mostly shade, 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

Blooms from early spring through early winter. They may stop blooming in the hottest weeks of summer to preserve energy.

Care Instructions

Water regularly. Will self sow, so be sure to plant where spreading is welcome.
