In the cool temperatures of late spring and early summer, the bushy 30 cm (12″) tall plants are almost completely covered with pretty double flowers. Colours include white, pink, red, purple and mauve to name a few. Flowering will tail off somewhat through the heat of summer but will still carry on until well into late summer.
How to Grow
1800 seed/gram. Grows much like Clarkia. Sow seed outdoors in mid-May and once or twice more at two week intervals. Plant seed 3 mm (1/8″) deep and keep the soil from drying out during the 7-14 day germination period. Thin seedlings to 25 cm (10″) apart when they are 10 cm (4″) high.
