Description

Large showy flowers have pointed yellow petals with a bright red centre. Tufts of hairs project from the seed-like fruits and the entire plant is covered with fuzzy hairs. In its native USA home some Plateau Indian tribes used blanket flowers to treat wounds and settle fevers.

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow seeds in good light at any time onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Seeds should ideally germinate in between 2 and 6 weeks although they make take considerably longer. Pot on seedlings before finally planting out into a container or a well-drained spot.
