  0 reviews

These are bushy annuals with rounded leaves and large, white, open-funnel-shaped flowers in late summer. The leaves are mid green, decorative and maple-shaped.
An easily grown plant, succeeding in any ordinary garden soil. Prefers a light well-drained moderately fertile soil in full sun. A soil that is too rich encourages foliar growth at the expense of flowering. Tolerates maritime exposure. Succeeds in dry soils. Plants are moderately fast-growing. A very ornamental plant. The cut flowers last a long time in water. A good bee plant.

You should sow the seeds outdoors in early spring from March to June in well drained, humus-rich soil.
Sow seed in pots or trays of moist seed compost and cover with a sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a temperature of between +18-+23C.
After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 14-21 days.
When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 8 cm pots or trays.
Grow on at a slightly lower temperature with good light and ventilation.
