Planting and Growing Tips:
These easy to grow wildflowers do well in most areas, but thrive in sunny locations with well drained soil. Direct sow in place after temperatures have warmed and space 12- to 18-inches apart in all directions. Mulch around plants to discourage weeds and conserve moisture. Once established, plants require little moisture.
Note: Germination is greatly improved with a 3- to 4-week cold treatment (see Seed Stratification). Place seeds and slightly damp paper towels in a Ziploc bag and store in the refrigerator prior to planting.
