Planting Tips:
  • Full sun.
  • 28-32"H.
  • Warm-season annual.
  • Start seeds indoors 2-3 weeks before planting date or cast seeds directly in the garden.  Cover seed with ¼” of soil; allow 2-7 days to germinate. Space 9-12” apart in the garden, grows to 28” tall. Pinch when 8" tall to establish a more robust branching plant. 75-90 days to bloom.
Harvest Tips:
  • Harvest when flowers are fully open, they will not open any further after cut.
  • Make the first harvest cut above the bottom two side shoots, this establishes a branching habit for the season.
  • Make future cuts at the base of the stem.
  • Excellent cut flower or in the landscape, attracts butterflies, birds, hummingbirds, and beneficial bugs, and drought tolerant.
  • Keep the Blooms Coming: Harvest blooms for cut flowers just as the little yellow flowers (stamens) develop in the center. Make the harvest cut at the base of the stem.
