65-70 days. Popping, true-blue flowers bring bounding color to every garden. Erica first fell in love with Miss Jekyll Blue in 1998 as a farm apprentice at the University of California and this love affair still flourishes. Up-close the blue flowers are elaborately delightful, and with time, transform into intricate purple-striped pods that continue to dazzle. Bring the beauty inside - flowers and pods make great fresh and dried cut flowers and will enliven all homes. An English heirloom from the 1800’s that still continues to captivate. Plants are 12-24” tall and can grow in pots. Best direct seeded. Plants may re-seed but won’t become a weed. All parts of the plant are toxic and should not be consumed. WGS

Sow seeds directly (outside) around 5/1 in a full sun location. Sow seeds in rows 2-9” apart. Seeds should be planted very shallow (1/8” deep.) Alternatively, scatter seeds and cover lightly with soil by dragging the back of a rake. Keep seeds moist until germination. Days to germination: 10-21 at 60°F. Seeds sown in early spring will bloom mid June. For continuous flower production, sow new seeds every 2-3 weeks spring through mid July. Water plants regularly. Plants will re-seed unless you remove the seed pods.
