Chocolate Lace Flower Plants

Easy to grow, easy to love, with a sweet subtle scent. Lace Flowers bloom all summer, and are perfect for cutting to add to bouquets. This Chocolate Lace flower is a gorgeous mix of burgundy hues, ranging from deep inky maroon to a dusty light pink color, for a beautiful ombre effect.

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 three young plants, grown in 2.5” diameter pots.

Growing Info
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
When to Plant Plant outside in the spring, After your last frost. Avoid the heat of the day when planting — plant in the early morning, late afternoon, or by the light of the moon

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Is this seed or a plant ? If it is a plant , how does it stand up to shipping ?

    Hi there! These ship as 3 young plants and they ship beautifully. They love air travel.

  • Hi! I live in southeast Michigan, can I grow these indoors over the winter?

    They are generally treated as summer annuals. They could be grown in a greenhouse, but they do not make good houseplants. They need sun, air flow, lots of water, etc.
