Hardy annuals can be sown directly into their flowering positions in the spring and will tolerate a certain amount of cold. Well-known flowers such as sweet peas, poppies, stocks and sunflowers fall under this category, as do some of the more unusual flowers - gomphocarpus & ratibida for example.
Dianthus barbatus 'Noverna Clown' F1 Hybrid
An eye-catching and unique colour combination! These large heads first open white, then the blooms change quickly to pink, purple and salmon shades whilst still retaining the occasional white flower. Sure to add interest to borders or to cut flower displays. Often grown as a biennial, this short lived perennial is ideal for cottage garden borders, beds and containers. Height: 40-45cm (16-18in).
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.More info
