TENDER PERENNIAL

Grown As Annual

 

TO START EARLY INDOORS

Five to six weeks before last frost date, sow seeds 1/2 inch deep and 2 inches apart in a container of seed starting mix. Keep moist and provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant in the garden. Acclimate seedlings gradually to outdoor conditions when night temperatures are regularly above 50°F (10°C). Space seedlings 10 to 12 inches apart in the garden.

 

TO START DIRECTLY OUTDOORS

Sow seeds in a well-worked seed bed in full sun when all danger of frost is past and weather is warm and settled. Space seeds 4 to 5 inches apart in rows 12 inches apart, cover about 1/2 inch deep and gently firm soil. Keep soil evenly moist while awaiting germination in 10 to 20 days.

 

GROWING NOTES

Firelight’s bright blossoms in three complementary shades will glow in garden beds or as container flowers. Use these warm colors to advantage in summer bouquets to add texture, color and form. You’ll find our Firelight Salvia is a low-maintenance plant, but removing spent flower heads will encourage more extended flowering.
