*Height: 16 inches
*Germination: 15-20 days
*Sow seed on surface of compost and gently firm down compost. Keep soil damp but not wet.
*They can tolerate short periods of drought, and grow best in well drained soil. They also grow well in poor or sandy soil. A pot with morning sun is perfect as they do not grow well in shade and may die back in the heat of noon hot sun.
*Deadhead regularly for prolonged blooming; after flowering has finished, cut the foliage back by one third unless saving the seed. Though this plant will self-seed in good conditions, it does not become weedy. These flowers attract bees, butterflies, and birds. Plant more every several weeks for continuous flowers.
