Growing Instructions: Plant prefers full sun and regular garden soils, excellent drainage. Sow seed in spring in flats. Scarify seed lightly on fine sandpaper. Barely cover seed, tamp well, and keep evenly moist, warm and in the light until germination, which takes 7 to 10 days. Transplant to pots after second set of true leaves appears. Within a few weeks the seedling will have grown sufficiently to transplant out to the garden. May also be directly seeded in a fine seedbed or nursery bed. Thin or transplant to 2 to 3 feet apart. Cut back in fall to limit snow damage and maintain a nice mounded shape.
