A mix of blue, white, yellow, pink, apricot, red, purple, 'Fantasy' (soft pink), Sunset, and Marine. Quartet's strong branching habit and hard stems make it an excellent choice for flower bouquets. Pinching is required for a well-balanced spray form. The Quartet series is "selectable" for double flowers, and 55% double without selection. Colors are subject to slight variance due to seed availability.

•Edible Flowers: The peppery, clove-like flavor of the flowers lends itself well to use as a garnish on salads, desserts, and drinks.

Shipping Information & Notes

Growing Information


DAYS TO GERMINATION: 7-14 days at 65-75°F (18-24°C).

SOWING: Transplant: Sow 2 seeds/cell, 1/4" deep in 128-cell plug trays 8-10 weeks before last frost. Cover seeds lightly with vermiculite to help retain moisture. Transplant to packs or larger containers 14-21 days after sowing.
Direct seed: Sow seed after last frost.

SELECTION: Select for double flower by observing color, size, and shape of the cotyledon. After approximately 7-10 days after emergence selecting the lighter green seedling with an oval shape will produce double flowers. Discard the very small seedlings, ones that are darker green in color, and those with rounder shaped cotyledons, which will produce single flowers.
