After all danger of frost has passed, sow in open ground well exposed. Cover with 1/8 inch of soil. For earlier blooms, start indoors in flats about 6-8 weeks before last frost. When plants are 2 inches high, thin or transplant before they become crowded.
Great for cut flower arrangements. Plant along wood side edges as an attractant for butterflies. Mulch lightly to protect from severe winters.
