A rich array of striped and blotched scarlet, carmine, vermillion, orange and rosy-purple on cream and dark yellow base colours. Vigorous 70 cm (28 in) plants make for amazing mass plantings or as a centre piece in planters! Easy-to grow!
Sow seed outdoors as soon as soil can be worked. Cover seed very lightly and keep the soil moist until all seedlings appear. For earlier blooms start seed 4 weeks prior to intended date of transplanting outside. Germinates best at 21 C (70 F) in 7-10 days. Reduce heat after 3 – 4 leaf stage to 15 C (60 F). Transplant as soon as possible to prevent shock. Fertilize every 2 weeks with 10-52-17 and liquid seaweed for strong healthy plants. Garden spacing 30 cm (12 in) apart.
