Candytuft Pinnacle White
Candytuft ‘Pinnacle White’
Candytuft is commonly grown as a bedding plant, but this special cut flower variety boasts tall stems and airy sprays of white blossoms. A cold hardy annual, this late spring to early summer bloomer makes a wonderful bouquet addition. After flowers have dropped their petals, they leave behind the most beautiful whirls of green seed pods that can be used either fresh or dried.

How to Grow:
Start seed indoors in trays 4-6 weeks before last frost; transplant out after all danger of frost has passed.
Harvest when ¼ to ⅓ of the florets on a stem are open. Expect a vase life of 7 days. Seed wands can be dried for later use. Hang freshly cut stems upside down in a warm, dark place for 2-3 weeks or until they are firm to the touch. Be gentle when handling after they’ve been dried because the seed pods can be fragile.
