How to Grow
1500 seed/gram. These little beauties are probably the easiest plant to grow from seed. We suggest simple scattering the seed on the surface of the soil any time from June through to the end of August - rain will work the seed into the proper depth. Plants will sprout then overwinter before flowering in the following spring then going to seed and dying. They make their best growth in slightly moist and shaded areas.
