HOW TO PLANT BUTTERFLY FLOWER SEEDS
When To Plant
Butterfly Flower seeds do best if planted directly outdoors in the Spring.
Where To Plant
The Butterfly Flower only needs soil that is ordinary and moist, but well drained. They also do well in full sun.
How To Plant
The seeds should not be planted deeply; they just need to be compressed into the soil, as they need light to germinate.
If planting in rows, then plant the seeds 18” apart.
How To Care For the Butterfly Flower
These seeds generally germinate in about 2-3 months.
Butterfly Flower should be watered regularly, but they can tolerate dry conditions. It is not necessary to fertilize.
It generally takes about 120 days for the Butterfly Flower to bloom after the seed is planted.
