Planting and Growing Tips:
Hardy plants thrive in rich, fast draining soil, ample water and plenty of sunshine. However, will tolerate poor soil conditions and some drought. Direct sow in early spring when the soil is still cool and a light frost is possible. May also be sown in the fall just before the ground freezes.
Remove the spent blossoms, or use as cuttings in flower arrangements, to extend the flowering season. Make sure to leave some faded blooms, especially later in the year, as plants are self-seeding.
