How to Plant
Stick in the dirt 1/4" deep, 2" apart. Water gently & regularly as seedlings emerge over the next 2 weeks. Once babies are 2” tall, pluck so there's just one per 12".

Find a place that gets mostly sun.
When to Plant
Early spring, or late fall if winters are mild. Sow directly into garden.
When to Expect Blooms
Blooms all summer long.
Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells. Pick the flowers to encourage more blooms.
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.
