This is an annual favorite that produces plumes of feathery pink flowering spikes. Flowers can be used in floral displays as they last a very long time when dried. The plants typically grow to an average height of 12"-36". Butterflies and hummingbirds go crazy for this plant.

Annual in All Zones

Seed Germination:

To start indoors:  Start your seeds 4-6 weeks before the last frost date in your area.

· Use a good seed starting medium such as Jiffy Mix. Fill seed flat with soil. Pre-moisten the soil and scatter the seeds lightly and evenly over the surface.

· Using a fork or small comb rake the soil surface over lightly to gently mix the seeds into the soil. Try not to press down too hard, but light enough that the seeds are covered with approx. 1/16” of soil. 

· Place seeds in a sunny location and keep moist using a fine misting spray until germination.

Germination can be expected from 5-10 days or sooner if conditions are optimal. Transplant seedlings when all danger of frost has passed.
