This easy to grow annual churns out enormous amounts of stems that are wonderful bouquet fillers and have the scent of Earl Grey tea. With whorl shaped blooms and unusual coloring - a mix of green, grey and purple - it has become a staple summer filler plant, used much like Bells of Ireland. The blooms attract beneficial insects and pollinators to the garden.
Details: Plant type: annual Height: 20-28” Site: full sun Days to maturity: 110-120 days Plant spacing: 12” Approx seeds per packet: 100-200
How to Grow: Start seed indoors in trays 6-8 weeks before last frost; transplant out after all danger of frost has passed.
Harvesting/Vase Life: Pick when the flower whorls begin to turn purple. Prone to wilting in heat, so harvest during the coolest part of the day. Expect a vase life of 7-10 days if preservative is used.d
