GERMINATION: 10 to 20 days depending upon weather and soil warmth. Keep soil moderately moist during germination.
Ed's Special Advice
Grows best in fairly moist soil in filtered sunlight or partially shaded areas. Can be sown mid to /ate summer for blooms the following year. Start seed indoors or in the greenhouse in late winter, earliest spring for possible flowering the first year. Plants will usually re-sow for the next year.
