Sow direct into finely raked, moist, warm soil where the plants are to flower at a depth of 6mm (¼") and cover the seed lightly with soil. Germination usually takes 10-14 days. Thin out seedlings if necessary to a final spacing of 20cm (8") apart, removing any competing weeds. Seeds can also be sown in September for flowering the following year.

Ideal for beds and borders, and rockeries. Prefers full sun.
