Additional Information

DAYS TO GERMINATION: 7-10 days at 75°F (24°C). When planted outside, soil temperature must be above 60°F (16°C).

SOWING: Direct seed: After last frost, once soil temperature is above 60°F (16°C), sow seed thinly in rows, barely covering the seeds. Thin when the first true leaves appear. Tall varieties may benefit from some wind protection.
Transplant: Sow seed thinly, barely covering, 5-7 weeks before setting out. Keep soil moist until emergence. When the first true leaves appear transplant into larger containers. Harden off and transplant outdoors after the last frost.

LIGHT PREFERENCE: Sun.

SOIL REQUIREMENTS: Any soil.

PLANT SPACING: 9-12". Wider spacing creates stronger, thicker stems.

HARDINESS ZONES: Annual.

HARVEST: Fresh: Harvest when petals on the first flower are just opening, but not yet flattened. Deadheading is required to have blooms all summer.

USES: Excellent cut flowers. Beds, containers, and mass plantings.

AAS (All-America Selections) Winners AAS (All-America Selections) Winners
We carry dozens of All-America Selections winners, including seven Johnny's-bred varieties -- Jasper Cherry Tomato; Baby Bear Pumpkin; Bright Lights Swiss Chard; Diva Cucumber; Sunshine Kabocha Squash; Bonbon Buttercup Squash; and Carmen Pepper. Read about Johnny's Plant Breeding Program (article by Rob Johnston Jr., Johnny's founder and chairman).<br> <br> All-America Selections is an independent, nonprofit organization that trials new varieties alongside two or three similar varieties currently on the market, then introduces only the best garden performers as AAS Winners. Submitted vegetable and flower varieties are tested by a geographically divergent network of independent judges to determine whether their garden performance is truly superior, with winners chosen on the basis of scores received from judges at 34 sites in the U.S. and Canada. Johnny's is proud to be an official trial ground site for AAS. (To learn more, visit the All-America Selections website.)
