This showy annual with dark-green, grass-like foliage has single, mixed color flowers from early June until late fall. Jefferson planted China Pinks along his winding flower border in 1807 along with Sweet Williams and Carnations. Although its fringed petals resemble the perennial grass pink, this species has no fragrance. Best sown indoors and transplanted to the garden in spring. Cover seed lightly; needs light to germinate. Plant in well-drained garden loam. Grows eight inches tall. Full sun.
Approximately 85-90 seeds per pack.
