Stock up on Stock! Get it? Huh? Bad joke. Sorry. Here is an annual that we see in early spring and late fall at The Garden Center.
As you can see from the photo, it blooms repeatedly when it’s cooler. This annual blooms in pink, white and shades of purple. The blooms are also fragrant!
It also tolerates a light frost and has few pest problems. Plant it in full sun to part shade with well draining soil.
Keep the flowers going by deadheading often. Fertilizing every 4 to 6 weeks will also keep the blooms coming! This colorful plant makes a great filler plant in beds or containers and can be used as a border.
