Although the seeds will germinate year-round, the plants fare best when transplanted in fall, so you should start the seeds in midsummer to ensure they are well established by planting time.

Easily grown in dry to medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Thrives in poor, sandy or rocky soils with good drainage. Tolerant of heat, humidity and drought. Prompt deadheading of spent flower stalks encourages additional bloom and prevents any unwanted self-seeding. Freely self-seeds, and in optimum growing conditions will naturalize to form large colonies. Plants may be cut back hard in summer if foliage sprawls or becomes unkempt. If grown in borders, division may be needed every 2-3 years to maintain robustness.


All of our seeds have been hand processed, packaged and tested for germination rates. We add padding to our package seeds for added protection. The seed will arrive in plastic bags that can be resealed for your convenience.


We cannot guarantee the rate of germination will match what we have tested at due to individual growing environments.  If you need additional information about growing our seeds please email us. All seeds are labeled with growing information.
