A lovely bedding plant and long-lasting cut flower. The petals have a crepe-paper quality which is luminous. I think these plants prefer warm, fresh days and cool nights. Godetia will bloom in considerable shade but will flop and need staking; plants grown in full sun are self-supporting and have more flowers.

This was my first year with clarkia - it rebloomed without much/any care, presented its seeds very pleasantly - in a windowbox. Next year it can graduate to a bed!
