Short code: 1262
Height: 45cm/18"
Description:

Eye catching and unusual, this showy annual makes a valuable border filler alongside other summer bedding or scattered amongst perennials. Carpets of narrow foliage erupt with red-eyed, pink buttercup blooms, creating a spectacular display over a long period.

Common name: Clarkia
Sowing/Growing information
Sowing Clarkia germinates quickly and is a vigorous grower which makes it possible to sow the seed direct into the final pack size required for sale. Alternatively plug sow the seed in a 144 cell plug tray as this is a good size for transfer to hanging baskets at a later date. Sow on the surface of a moist seed sowing compost and cover the seed with a good 3mm to 4mm covering of vermiculite. Propagate at 20C and germination should result within 7 days. Be prepared to move the seedlings from the propagation area quickly and cool down to 15C, as they will stretch very quickly.
Growing When the seedlings are established cool them down slightly to 10C and transfer on to a 6 Pack or 9cm pot for final sale. January sowings should result in saleable plants in late April.
