Planting and Growing Tips:
Hardy plants — originally from Brazil — are easy to grow and thrive in most soils and sunny locations. Start indoors in flats — 6- to 8-weeks before the last frost — for early season flowering or sow directly in beds or borders. Space 12- to 18-inches apart and water occasionally. Plants can tolerate heat and some drought making them a good choice for xeric gardens.
Take cuttings with a sharp pair of pruning snips and use fresh or dried in flower arrangements. Dry by hanging tied bundles upside down in a dark, well ventilated area. Great for potpourri!
