Nemophila hardy annuals

Nemophila hardy annualsNemophila are pretty, neat, and compact hardy annuals, well worth cultivating. They succeed best in a moist and shady situation, delight in peat or vegetable mould, and when grown in circles are very striking.

If you want the Nemophila to flower early, sow the seed in autumn, or on a hotbed in spring; and if required for late blooming, sow in the open in March. Treated thus they flower from June to September.

Their height is about one feet.
