Product Description

A California native annual spring wildflower with the cutest white flowers sporting a purple spot on each petal. Nice rounded spring green foliage with a slightly sprawling habit provides excellent edging, container or basket material. Has a longer season in cooler regions but is so delightful it should be enjoyed everywhere. Succession sowing a couple of times 3-4 weeks apart through the end of Spring will extend the flowering season so old plants can be pulled out if looking spent and new ones will be coming along. Where it's warmer be sure to give it plenty of water and bright shade is good like tucked under the front of a bush or a shaded patio. Great choice for around bird baths as it likes the extra moisture.
