Product Description

Honeywort 'Pride of Gibraltar'
Cerinthe major

One of the most uniquely colored flowers I’ve ever grown, a single stem in full bloom can be silver, blue, purple, and green all at the same time. Featuring gracefully arching stems with nodding blooms, these plants are easy to grow and produce a bumper crop for many weeks. Honeywort combines beautifully with most other flowers, makes a great bouquet filler and bees love it.

Details:
Plant type: annual
Height: 24-36”
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 65-70 days
Plant spacing: 9-12”
Pinch: not necessary
Approx seeds per packet: 25

How to Grow:
Start seed indoors in trays 6 weeks before last frost; transplant out after all danger of frost has passed.

Harvesting/Vase Life:
Harvest during the coolest hours of the day and then treat stems right away by dipping the bottom 2-3 inches in boiling water for 7-10 seconds and then placing them into cool water with preservative. Stems get very floppy immediately after harvest, but once hydrated, honeywort has a vase life of 7-10 days.
