Planting Instructions:
Direct sow in late fall, pressing into the surface of the soil since this plant needs light to germinate. For spring planting, mix the seeds with moist sand and store in the refrigerator for 60-90 days before planting. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination, which usually occurs within 2-4 weeks. Water seedlings regularly until they become established; mature plants grow well in drought and poor soil, though they will bloom best with occasional watering in especially dry weather.
