Famous for its wild color combinations, this is the brightest and liveliest Treasure Flower mix we know!
Certain to bring a smile to your face and a load of dazzling color to your garden from early summer till frost, Sunshine is exactly what its name suggests — bright, carefree hot color! No two blooms are exactly alike, with color-saturated solids competing for attention with cabana-striped bicolors and free-for-all multicolors with as many as 5 distinctly different shades per bloom!
About all they have in common is their huge size — 4 inches across, conservatively — and their huge, cheery yellow centers, which may remind you of Sunflowers with their interesting rings of petaloids and fascinating color gradations.
These blooms begin in early summer on compact 10- to 12-inch plants and then, like the wild partygoers they are, just keep coming all summer and into fall, until the first hard frost forces them to depart.
And like all good guests, they don’t ask much — in this case, just lots of sun and well-drained soil of almost any type. The foliage is attractive, too (though who can pay any attention to it, under those wild blooms?), with silvery-gray highlights. What a show!
Sunshine Mix contains 5 base colors–cream, yellow, orange, pink, and red–with seemingly endless variation in stripes, rings, dots, and shadings! Start this fabulous annual indoors 4 to 6 weeks before last frost, or sow it direct as soon as the soil can be worked in spring. Pkt is 25 seeds.
