Clarkia is a gorgeous but seldom-seen cottage garden flower. Drifts of pink, red, mauve, and white are good for cutting and beneficial to pollinators.

Clarkia hates root disturbance and cold soil but loves lots and lots of sun.

If using Clarkia as a cut flower, cut when just the top bud has opened, and then they will last well in a vase. They flower from July to September.

Seed Quantity: 550 Seeds

Type: Hardy Annual

Genus: Clarkia elegans

Sow Seeds: Sow mid-April directly where they are to grow.  Water before sowing, and sow 0.5 cm deep in rows 30 cm apart.   You can sow Clarkia in the autumn for earlier and larger plants, but as they do hate boggy soil, I tend to always sow mine in mid-April. Don't be tempted to sow any earlier, as it just won’t be warm enough for them.  Water the flower bed before sowing and sow directly where they are to grow.  Likes full sun. Hates root disturbance.  They take 3–4 weeks to germinate.

Plant Out: After the last frosts, likes full sun and well-drained soil

Flowers: July-September

Height & Spread: 60cm high x 30–40 cm spread
