Also known as Griffithii, Thoroughwax, and Hare's Ear.

Days to maturity: 80-90

Seeds per pack: 70-75

Germination rate: 49% (total viability: 96%) on 01/08/2024 (read more about viability)

Planting / harvesting notes

Sow 5-8 weeks early in 72 or 128 cell flats. Harden off before transplanting into the garden. Or direct sow into cool soil (6 weeks before last frost) for best results. Prefers full or partial sun. Space plants at 6-10" apart and provide support in windy locations. 

Seed keeping notes

Allow the seeds to dry and turn brown/dark purple/black on their stems. They are ready when they easily shatter into a bucket when the spent flowers are squeezed. Use screens and winnowing to remove the chaff from the seeds. Store in a cool, dark place when fully dry.
