Story of this Seed:

This is another old family pass-me-down plant. We have been growing this plant for over 25 years and we have relatives that have been growing it even longer. The seeds are small and encased in a paper wing.


Growing Tips:

Planting suggestions: Pre-moisten some well draining potting mix. Lay the seeds on the mix and lightly cover with additional mix. Gently press to assure good seed to soil contact. Moisten the soil. Place in a warm location with indirect light. Seeds may take 1 to 3 weeks to germinate. Once seedlings are several inches tall and have several sets of leaves, transfer into larger container or into final planting location.

The plant grows very easy and is fairly pest/drought resistant. It like medium water - do not allow it to sit in water. A light pruning prior to the spring blush will keep the shrub bushy and produce more flowers.
