I planted this from seed earlier this year. I directly sowed the seed in a prepared garden bed and just kept it wet. They were extremely easy to grow and have already bloomed. These darling little flowers are a nice companion for dwarf sun flowers and terra cotta calibrachoa (million bells).

A very beautiful plant. With minimal care it is easy to have a lush plant that is chock full of blooms!

Light aids germination of seeds.
