A beautiful annual which blooms throughout a long summer season. It produces large solid heads of bright rich colours on dwarf bushy plants. Admirable for filling out summer beds sowing in drifts etc, and the flowers are splendid for cutting. Autumn sown plants make fine spring flowering pot plants for the cool greenhouse. Flowers early summer to autumn.
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.
Transplant when large enough to handle into 8cm (3in) pots. Pinch out the growing points when 8cm (3in) high to ensure a bushy habit. Later plant out 23cm (9in) apart into rich well drained soil and full sun. They can also be sown outdoors in spring where they are to flower.
Sufficient seed to raise approx. 70+ plants
