Seeds per pack: 20
Hardiness zone: 2-9
Height: 36" or 90cm
Location: Sun or part sun
Germination: These seeds are very easy to germinate! These seeds are best planted in very early spring OR in late summer to early fall. Rake the ground, and then scatter the seeds on the raked ground. Lightly rake the seeds in, so that they are just barely covered by the soil, being careful that they are not too deep. Water the area, and keep it continually moist until plants begin to grow. If you are planting in fall, the seeds may not germinate until the spring, which is normal. Once they are established they are drought tolerant.
