Technically a Perennial we treat these as Biennials in that once they have a full season of flowering it's best to remove them and start with a new plant. Pick a spot in your garden that is not in a low spot and has a raised bed as these do not like soggy roots. They prefer well drained soil so you might consider adding some coarse sand or fine gravel to your planting area. You can direct seed these in fall when you still have some mild temperatures about two months before your first frost, or in the spring before you last frost. Seeds sown in spring will flower in late summer/early fall. Sow seeds on surface and lightly dust with peat as they need light to germinate. To have flowers all summer we sow half in the fall and half in the spring.

You can also start these in pots in winter but you will have to use a pot 6" deep as they send long tap roots when germinating. Transplant into your garden after your last frost.
