Very deep blue flowers on compact upright 15 cm (6 in) plants. Bronze leaves.
Start seed 10 to 12 weeks before date of transplanting out in the garden. Just press the seed into the soil as light is required for germination. Soil temperature should be 20-24 C (70-75 F). Seed should germinate in 7 to 14 days. Reduce temperature to near 15 C (65 F) after the 3 leaf stage for best results. Transplant in clumps of 3-5 seedlings for a better show. Fertilize every 2 weeks with 10-52-17 and liquid seaweed for strong healthy plants. Garden spacing 25 cm (10 in) apart.
