Description – A really unusual and easy to grow annual. Bred by Thompson & Morgan, the tall erect plants have lots of extra large, pure white flowers with distinctive black speckled markings. Best suited as a border filler but can be used as a short-lived cut flower.
Sowing – Best sown where they are to flower in spring, or late summer/early autumn for overwintering. Sow 3mm (1/8in) deep in rows 30cm (12in) apart in well cultivated soil which has been raked to a fine tilth.
Growing – Thin out the seedlings only if they are crowded. They prefer full sun and a rich moisture retentive soil but are not very fussy.
Flowers – Summer
