Amazing dark-red flowers each with a second row of golden brown petals, creating a unique effect. An easy to grow annual for direct seeding in the border or an excellent cutflower growing from 60-80 cm (24-30") in height. A great plant to use where deer browsing is a problem. Please note that Roulette is not a true perennial but rather an annual that readily self-seeds.

How To Grow
3,640 seeds/gram. Start seed indoors in a soil-less mix in early spring for mid summer blooms. Germinate at 24 C (75 F) for 5 to 10 days. After germination, grow on under lights at a slightly cooler temperature before hardening off and transplanting outside to a sunny spot. Outdoors, sow seed mid-May to early June. Keep the soil moist during the germination period. Thin plants to 30 cm (12") apart in the garden.
