Schizanthus showy annuals

Schizanthus showy annualsSchizanthus are extremely beautiful and showy annuals. A rather poor, light soil is most suitable for their growth. For early flowering sow the seed in autumn, and keep the young plants in a frame or greenhouse throughout the winter.

For a succession of bloom sow Schizanthus in the open border early in the spring. They flower in July and August.

Their height is about two feet.
