Growing Info

Harvesting: For longest vase life, harvest in the morning, choosing buds that are about half open. Change vase water frequently.

Special Care: May require staking, especially if plants are not getting enough sun. Plants may get mildew in part shade; full sun and proper spacing will hinder mildew. To extend bloom season, increase size of existing flowers, and prevent reseeding, remove spent flowers. Successive sowings will provide a more continuous bloom period.
