Brightly coloured with prominent contrasting blotches, which provide a dazzling display of colour to flower borders, pots, baskets and containers.
Treat as Half Hardy Annual.
Sow indoors, February-April, to flower the same year, 0.5cm (¼") deep, in a tray of compost.
Water well and place on a warm kitchen windowsill. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal.
Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days.
Transplant to other trays, 5cm (2") apart, when large enough to handle.
Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts),
before planting out into well-drained soil, May-October, 15cm (6") apart, when frosts are over.
Or, sow thinly, outdoors, May-August to flower the following year, in a seed bed, 0.5cm (¼") deep,
into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 5cm (2") apart,
before planting out to flowering position from late summer onwards, spacing 15cm (6") apart. Flowers: May to October.
