Planting and Growing Tips:
Great for novice gardeners, this easy to grow variety does well in full sun to partial shade with average to rich, well drained soils. Sow indoors 6- to 8-weeks before the last frost date of spring or direct sow outdoors in prepared beds after temperatures have warmed. Space seedlings 8- to 12-inches apart in all directions and mulch around plants to help conserve moisture and prevent weeds.
Note: For a striking array of early spring colors, mass plant around tulip and daffodil bulbs.
