Planting Instructions:
In late fall or early spring, sow the seeds on the surface of the soil. Make sure not to cover them as they need light to germinate. Keep the soil lightly moist and germination should occur in about 2 weeks. To start the seeds indoors, so on the surface of a flat for about 6 weeks before transplanting after the last frost of spring. Keep lightly moist and at a temperature of 60-65°. This plant will prefer full sun, but will tolerate shade. Keep seedlings moist, but once established, the mature plant will prefer dry soil and will only need to be watered during extremely dry periods. Use a well draining soil. After plants have flowered, trim them back to half their size to keep them tidy and promote healthy growth. Mature plants can be divided after year 2-3.
