Perennial, super fast and easy growing dwarf flowers that add a superior, eye-catching look into every flower garden & home. Reaching only up to 30cm (11.8in) tall, they are popular for their unique, highly attractive look, beautiful color pallet & fantastic, soothing scent. These flowers are perfect for pots to be grown on windowsills, balconies, as well as in open spaces. Looks amazing alone or grown together with other dwarf flower varieties. Low maintenance, extraordinarily look & fantastic scent makes it among the top popular flower varieties among the gardeners. Blooms heavily for three months.

Growing: challenging in tropical climate; in temperate climates, start the seeds 6-8 weeks prior the last frost date and transplant outside when the danger of last frost is gone and soil has warmed up. Grows best with temp. +10-18C (50-65F) during the day and +4-10C (40-50F) during the night.

Soil: light, fertile, slightly alkaline (6.5-6.9pH). Do not use rich soils, as the plant will end up with lots of green leaves and very few blooms. Wet soils that drain poorly will cause yellow color, wilting plants.

Sowing depth: 1cm (0.4in) deep.

Spacing: 25cmx25cm (9.8x9.8in).

Light: full sun/partial shade. Requires a min of 4-6 hours of sunlight for healthy blooms and foliage.

Watering: a light spray of water on the plant 2-3 times a week should be enough to meet their watering needs unless it's extremely hot and dry.

Fertilizing: not needed.
