About the product

Amazing mixture with full inflorescences in wide color range.
A perennial in warm areas, it is often grown as a half hardy annual in temperate areas.
Mix of colorful flowers from July to October.
An easily grown plant so long as the soil does not dry out.
It requires a deep rich soil and a sunny position, disliking shade.
The growing plant is very frost-tender, though the tubers are somewhat hardier tolerating temperatures down to about -5C. However, these tubers are not reliably hardy if left in the ground over winter in Britain. They are best harvested after the foliage is killed off by frost and then stored in a cool but frost-free place over the winter, planting out in April/May.
Approximately 40 seeds in 0.5g packet.
