DAYS TO GERMINATION: 7-10 days at 70-75°F (21-24°C).

Transplant — Sow into 72-cell flats or preferred seedling container 4-6 weeks before last frost. Do not cover seed as light is required for germination. Bottom water or mist to avoid covering seeds with displaced soil. Transplant to cell packs or larger containers when the first true leaves appear. Harden off and transplant outside after the danger of frost has passed. Direct seed — Sow after last frost, only where summers are very long. Trellis, such as Hortonova, used as horizontal support, may be necessary.

Provide temperatures of 65-70°F (18-21°C) during the day and 60°F (16°C) at night.


Average soil with good drainage.



Harvesting increases yields. Fresh or dried: Cut when 2-3 layers of petals have unfolded but before flowers fully open. Hang to dry.

Excellent dried flower. Borders, fillers, and back of beds.
