Heliotrope plants

Heliotrope plantsSow the Heliotrope plants seed early in spring in light, rich soil in a little heat, and plant out in May. The best plants, however, are obtained from cuttings taken off when young, in the same way as Verbenas and bedding Calceolarias.

Heliotrope plants are very sensitive to frost. They flower in June and their height is about one feet.
