|Flower Colour — Purple|
|Soil Requirements — Well drained soil|
Sow early Spring to Summer – all year round in subtropical and tropical areas. Sow 5mm (1/4”) deep in pots or trays of seed raising mix. Transplant to final growing position when sturdy enough to handle, spacing plants 50cm (20”) apart each way. Water daily, and when the first truss has set, feed regularly. Pinch outside shoots as they appear. Can also be sown direct in final position after danger of frost has passed. Prefers a warm sunny position and requires staking. Seedlings emerge 10-14 days.
Keep soil moist until established.
Cut back all spent flowers.
