Short tufts of dark green leaves, with silver-grey undersides, give rise to bright yellow or orange flowers in the summer. Plants may be kept from year to year if they are not subjected to frost.
Sow seeds in containers in early spring - gentle bottom heat may help improve germination. Do not plant out until all danger of frost is passed. Grow in full sun in moderately fertile garden soil with good drainage. For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant.
