  • Full sun to light shade
  • Biennial plants produce a rosette of foliage the first year and flowers abundantly in year two.
  • For flowers the first year, sow indoors very early (December or January) 2-3 weeks before last frost. 
  • Seeds take 14-21 days to germinate.
  • If starting indoors, provide bright light and a soil temperature of 15-18°C (60-65°F). Sow on the surface, keep moist, and under light. Better as transplant seedlings when they are old enough to handle and plant outdoors in sunny spot.
  • Prefers full sun; and thrives in moist shady areas.
  • Toxic if ingested; keep children and pets from digesting
  • Each plant will produce thousands of tiny seeds - to avoid self sowing cut the stalks down as soon as flowering has finished and if you want to keep seeds for next season; cut stalks and place seeds in a paper envelope for replanting
  • Attracts insects and bumble bees
  • Seed Count: 100
