Tweedia Caerulea * Southern Star * Blue Milkweed * Stunning Blue Sky Flowers * 5 Seeds *
THIS LISTING IS FOR 5 SEEDS OF TWEEDIA CAERULEA Specially bred for cut flower use, but equally at home as a very decorative plant for the border, is this lovely variety with narrow sprays of spectacular sky-blue flowers, a colour seldom found in the garden. Unlike the ordinary, type species which is a climber, this is a normal, stand-alone plant and, although a true perennial, is intended to be grown as an annual flowering in only a few months from seed. Winter hardy to USDA Zones 10-11 where it is easily grown in average, dry to moist, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Best in full sun in cool summer climates, but appreciates some afternoon shade in hot summers. Wide range of soil tolerance, including somewhat poor soils. Site in locations protected from wind and if possible rain. If bushiness is desired, pinch stem tips in spring. Can grow as an annual from seed started indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost date. May also be grown in containers that can be overwintered indoors. Bring containers indoors in fall before frost and place in a bright cool spot with reduced watering until spring. As an alternative, cuttings may be taken from garden plants in late summer for overwintering. Long summer bloom period. Attracts bees and smallinators. Grows well in Containers. Leaves turn beautiful deep red in fall.
