How to Plant
Tuck seeds 1/2-1" into the ground, about 9" apart. Water gently and regularly as seedlings emerge over the next 2 wks.
Where to Plant
Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, and seeds about 9" apart.
When to Plant
Plant outside after your average last frost in the Spring.
When to Expect Blooms
Single, glorious bloom in the Summertime.
Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells. And ask us any questions along the way.
If left in the garden these pollen-less varieties will occasionally self-seed but second year plants often look different than the original.
