Gaillardia pulchella has brilliant colored, daisy-like flowers. Short-lived perennials but self sowing on open ground, likes any sunny location with good soil drainage and on the dry side, best blooming in low nitrogen soils.

Surface sow the seeds, light needed for best results. As the seeds germinate in a week or so, add a very thin layer of soil medium to give the seedlings better contact with the soil for root growth.

The flowers are pure white with pink stamen filaments, before the flowers open they are enclosed in pink tinted buds. This selection produces plants that are heavy bloomers and the flowers are produced continuously throughout the summer. Gaura lindheimeri 'Summer Breeze' is a drought and heat tolerant perennial with a shrub-like look. The seeds are large and easy to handle and can be sown one at a time in deep pots, or in place of growth in the garden. Place in an area that has well drained, sandy soil in full sun to partial shade. Best effect when planted in groups of three or five plants, with each spaced about 1.5 feet apart. In the fall the plants can be cut down to just above the soil surface, some self seeding occurs but generally not a problem.

                                Large flowering Gaura Onagraceae:

                                Gaura longiflora can be an annual or a short lived perennial, it grows 3 to 6 feet tall. The herbage is hairy. The stems are more or less upright and much branched near the tops. The attractive and showy flowers are produced in long, slender spikes. The flowers are sessile, about 1 inch long; they have 4 sepals that are reddish in color. The 4 petals are up to 3/5 inch long, white in color and fading too pinkish as they mature. The long, clawed stamens add a fascinating feature to the flowering display, they protrude well past the petals. The plant habit and flowering nature make this plant best suited for a wild area or butterfly garden. The flowers are interesting but are not produced in sufficient amounts at any one time to put on a very showy display.

                                Gaura longiflora naturally grows in dry, rocky prairies, or on open disturbed areas, along roadsides, and on other open disturbed soils.

Includes many rarely offered selections. Most Geranium species produce few seeds and they are a challenge to collect, so they are rarely sold as seed, though there are many species that are attractive garden plants and should be offered - so they end up in this mix. We have increased the number of seeds per packet so that a good range of species and hybrids can be obtained. Some are not hardy in zones 4, and a few are not hardy in zone 5. Most seeds are large and easy to germinate and the plants are easy to take care.

                                              Thinly cover seeds and use 70-75F days and 50-55F nights, Seal in a plastic bag to keep humidity up, Germination in 5-60 days. Might be helpful to soak the seeds in warm water for 24 hours first. Grow seedling out on the cool side, 60F is good.

                                                    A short lived perennial that self seeds easily enough to establish a nice presence in the garden under the right conditions. Plants grow from 12 to 128 inches tall when in flower and have blue flowers with some purple-violet veining. Use in a sunny location that is well drained but moisture retentive. Plants bloom from mid spring to mid summer and will flower the first year from an early sowing - grow out cool for best results - so a mid winter sowing works very well.

Plants have soft blue colored flowers that are stripped with soft pinkish blue veins. A nice form of Geranium pretense with sky-blue colored, cup-shaped flowers with attractive veining. A little shorter growing than the normal forms of the species and later to bloom. It is less likely to need staking and will re-bloom if deadheaded or cut back heavily. Plants grow 2 to 3 feet tall and flower from late spring to late summer, after blooming trim back to tidy up clumps. Grow in sun to part shade in moisture retentive but well drained soils. A worthwhile novelty Geranium for growing in the perennial border or for the open woodland garden. Plants sometimes self seed but not aggressively; seedlings mostly come true to type unless grown near other forms of the species. The seedlings need 2 years of growth before they large enough to flower well from seed, some blooming the second year. Long lived once established. Seeds are good sized and plants can be planted out after a month or two of growth. Grow in full sun or part shade in moist but well draining soils. Grows in heavy clay or chalky soils. Once established will survive drought conditions or periods of wetness.

This species forms slowly spreading clumps that develop into very attractive carpets of six to ten inch tall foliage with showy flowers interspersed just above the foliage. Long blooming from mid spring to mid summer. Great used as an edging or used intermixed with large rocks. Sow in moist medium and put in the fridge for four weeks. Germination in 3-100 days at F 65. I sow mine in a bag as above but leave the seed in my cold fridge (33-35F) until the seed starts to germinate: about two months, once seedlings have a root, I move them to a pot and keep them at F 55 for a few weeks until I have leaves. Plants will bloom in three months from germination and should be grown in full sun in well draining but moisture retentive soils, in a shady location the foliage can develop black spots and fall off the plant, but I must say that these seed raised plants look a lot better than the named cultivated clones on the market. Plants have stayed attractive all season long, looking good even in the fall with large attractive green leaves that often turn a bright reddish color.
