Twizzle Coral

This descendent of a wildflower born in North America, east of the Mississippi, is sturdy, evergreen in most regions, loves going to local farmers markets on Saturdays, (mainly just to people watch), and has a unique coral tone that will add height and flare to your gardens and vases.

Hands down the best thing about the cone-shaped blooms on "Twizzle" Coral is looking over at them by chance when you’re out in the garden and seeing a fuzzy little bumble bee butt sticking out of one, all busy and buzzy. Plus, it’s really pretty, native to the USA, and perennial.

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, 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 Spring until late fall
Care Instructions Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells. Pick blooms to encourage more
Extra Credit When your plant is about 9-12" tall you can pinch off the main growth tip to encourage a bushier plant with more blooms

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • We received several 3 packs in the mail. It’s to early to plant. Do we leave the plants in the container until planting time? Do we water them?

    Just open up the container the stand the plants up inside, that will give you an easy place to water them and let them get fresh air and sunshine until you're ready to plant!
