Schizanthus (Butterfly Flower)

Butterfly Flowers are native of open spots in the Andean mountain range in South America. Most species are easily cultivated, fast-growing floriferous annuals with upright stems from a basal leaf rosette crowned by lose racemes of most showy, bicolored rose to lilac and yellow to orange, orchid-like flowers above strongly dissected leaves. For any rich, well-drained soil in a sunny spot.
Sow the fine seeds flat on any rich, well drained soil in full sun in late spring when last freezing nights are over. Do not cover seeds with soil and keep pots in a protected spot. Transplant seedlings to the final spot in the garden as soon as plants are strong enough in early summer. Alternatively sow directly to the ground in the garden by the end of spring.
20 seeds per package.
