Height: Up to 4'

Location: Sun or part sun

Type: Hardy perennial

Hardiness zones: 2-7

Seeds per pack: 40 (these seeds are very small)

Germination: Start these seeds right away for best germination rates. Sow the seeds just on the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 5-6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature for them to germinate. Germination is in 14-60 days after the warming period. If possible, the best location for sowing in March, April and May, is in cold frame or a cold greenhouse where they will receive the cold period and fluctuating temperatures naturally.
