Cerinthe (Honeywort)

Honeywort is a small genus with some 12 species from Eurasia. They are growing as annuals or perennials and usually show more or less plain, bluish-green, broad oval leaves and nodding inflorescences with white, yellow to purplish funnel shaped flowers throughout the summer. All are easily grown in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot.
Sow seeds flat directly to the ground in any rich, well drained soil in spring. Plants greatly dislike to be transplanted, thus leave undisturbed. All annual species will readily selfsow under appropiate conditions. In a mild winter seedlings will survive outside if they are not burnt by strong freezings. Alternatively collect some seeds in summer to be sowed in following spring.
All are USDA Climate Zone 7/8.
