Useful for bedding and border work of any description and in particular for carpeting dry, sunny banks, as they will thrive in soils where few other plants will even live. Flowers summer to frosts.

Sow outdoors where they are to flower. Prepare the ground well and rake to a fine tilth before sowing. Sow 20mm (¾in) deep, in rows 30cm (12in) apart.

For Earlier Flowering: Sow seed, 1cm (½in) deep, 3 seeds per 7.5cm (3in) pot, in free draining, damp, seed compost. Place at 20-29C (68-86F) until after germination.

Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out after all risk of frost. They flower most freely in poor dryish soils and full sun.
