Baby Eyes (Nemophila Maculata Five Spot) 300 seeds (#1041)

The Five Spot flower plant is a low growing annual, that is great as a carpet or bedding plant. Native to the United States, it can be found growing naturally in meadows, by road sides, and along woodlands.
Five Spot gets its name from its flower. The bright white, one inch flowers are, buttercup-shaped. Each of the five white petals have purple veins and a purple spot on the tip of the petal. It is a heavy bloomer from spring thru summer.
Try growing Five Spot in rock gardens, in the front of the flower bed, as a border edging, or in containers on your patio or deck.
Nemophila does best in cool, dry climates where it will grow well in full sun as long as it is kept moist. In warmer regions, it will benefit from partial or dappled shade. In the warmest areas, it should be planted for a spring display.
Baby blue eyes must have good drainage; a light, sandy loam is best.
Transplant plants into the garden after the last frost. Space 6 to 9 inches apart. Nemophila readily reseeds itself in the garden.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
Sow indoors or outdoors from March to the beginning of June or August-October, where they are to flower, 5mm deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered.
Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days.
Thin seedlings to 15 cm apart. Water well until plants are established.
For a continuous display, make sowings at two to three-week intervals. Sowings made in curves, rather than straight lines, often create a more pleasing effect.
Save a few seeds to sow late June and, in most years, you will have blooms until the first frosts.
Remove dead heads to prolong the flowering season.
