Blooming in clusters of pastel pinks, this wildflower loves to cascade over stone walls or hanging baskets. It is called Catchfly because little flies and gnats get stuck on the sticky seed pod behind the flower. This biennial originates from the southern Mediterranean region but can be grown in most garden settings. It is effortless to grow and looks best when planted in mass.

Planting Instructions:
Direct sow in late fall pressings the seeds into the surface of the soil since this plant needs light to germinate. For spring planting, mix the seeds with moist sand and store in the refrigerator for 30 days before planting. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination. Prefers to be rather moist and watering during dry weather will improve its blooming.
