This unique beauty has the benefit of being heat and drought tolerant too! Large, conical spikes of feathery flowers top the thick silver green foliage. The 7-10 cm (3-4 in) flower spikes are glistening silver with a darker neon pink color near the tips. Use as an accent in mixed pots and containers or as a compliment in your annual flower beds.rn12 to 15 inches tall
Start seed 6 to 10 weeks in advance of intended date for moving plants to the garden. Cover seed lightly with soil. Germinates best at 25 C (77 F) usually in 5-7 days. Transplant at the 3 leaf stage and maintain 76°F to 80°F temperatures and keep moderate soil moisture levels–do not saturate soil and allow to dry out between waterings. Over-watering will stunt growth. Fertilize every 2 weeks with 10-52-17 and liquid seaweed for strong healthy plants. Garden spacing 45 cm (18 in) apart.
