Planting and Growing Tips:
Perfect for adding vertical interest to gardens, this easy to grow heirloom thrives in full sun to partial shade and rich, moist soil. Sow outdoors just beneath the soil surface 1- to 2-weeks before the last frost of spring. Thin seedlings 18- to 36-inches apart and water as needed. When flowers fade, cut stalks to the ground.
Plants are vulnerable to several insect and disease problems. Watch closely and treat with organic products when necessary.
