Sophisticated and beautiful Dara.

Although Daucus Carota 'Dara' is technically classified as a biennial, you may manage it just like a hardy annual, giving you more control over when its flowers appear.
Indoor sowing should begin in January or February for flowers to begin appearing in May; outdoor sowing can take place in April or May for flowers to appear in the summer and autumn.
Flowers will bloom the following year if you sow the seeds between June and September, just like you would with other biennial plants If you enjoy flowers with lacey details, you will adore this one.

Long stems and feathery foliage are characteristic of the Daucus Dara plant, which is capped by huge flowers in burgundy and soft pink. When planted in drifts along borders, they appear like softly floating clouds. 

Daucus Dara also makes a wonderful cut flower, adding a laid-back meadow vibe to arrangements

Sow Seeds Spread the seeds out thinly on a bed that has been thoroughly prepared and then lightly cover them with soil. This should be done immediately where you want the plants to grow. Cloches can be used to protect seeds when they are sown early on, and the time it takes for seeds to germinate should be between 10 and 20 days. When the seedlings are mature enough to be handled, carefully thin them out to a distance of 10 centimetres apart, ensuring to water them first to not disrupt any neighbouring roots
