Clarkia purpurea 'Burgundy Wine' Seeds Winecup Fairyfan

Pkt 50 Seeds

Product Description

A California native selection that embodies the essence of what I call California Cottage Style. Clarkia Burgundy Wine will mingle nicely with many friends in your garden with its easy gracefulness and beautifully contrasting deep burgundy flowers and bluish glaucous foliage. FYI if grown in rich garden conditions it may need support. Needs a bright area with partial afternoon shade in warmer areas. Will not last with dry or humid summer heat more of a spring flower or cooler summer climates. Will grow well in low nutrient soil which will actually keep overzealous foliage growth in check that can get floppy. Does not like root disturbance so use plantable pots or individual cell trays and plant out while small if starting indoors. Direct sow in spring or fall zones 8-10. Stems maybe unique cut flower material.
