How to Plant
Dig a hole and tuck your plant in so it is even with the soil. Now give your plant a good wish, a few solid pats to compress the soil around it, and a long drink of water.
Where to Plant
Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, and space plants about 9" apart.
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
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.
