This plant is a friend to bees, butterflies, and particularly hummingbirds.
Lovely flowers with a sweet chocolate fragrance. A plant that offers bell-shaped flowers all summer, ranging in color from white to pink, mauve, and deep violet, with a dark brownish-violet halo at the center.
In spring, mix the seeds with damp soil and refrigerate them for 30 days before planting. Sow them at a depth of 1/8’’, just below the soil surface. Germination should typically occur within 7 to 15 days. Keep the soil moist until the plants mature. Once the plant is well-established, it can tolerate drought. This plant adapts well to rocky or sandy areas.
