DESCRIPTION: Flowering annual with a compact growth habit, ideal for potted colour & mass planting in flower beds and rock gardens. Cute flowers with 'happy faces' in a mix of purple, bronze and ochre shades. PLANTING: Summer-Winter, and spring in cooler parts of Australia. Sow seeds into trays containing seed raising mix, cover with a fine layer of soil and keep moist. Thin seedlings when plants have 2-4 leaves, and transplant when seedlings are large enough to handle. Plant in free draining soil in a full sun-partly shaded location for best flowering. Preparing garden beds with well composted manure will give the best results. CARE: Water seedlings regularly until established and continue to provide water especially during dry spells. Mulch plants to keep the shallow roots cool in summer. For an extra long flowering season, remove spent blooms and feed with liquid fertiliser. Frost hardy once established.
