Schizanthus Angel Wings Mix Seeds
Info: Schizanthus Angel Wings Mix is also known as "Poor Man`s Orchid" due to its unusually shaped, colourful flowers, which look like small butterflies. It is a nightshade plant and origins from the highlands of Chile. The plants are compact and branching reaching 30-45cm and will produce an amazing display of colours in pink, lavender, rose red and two-tones.
Sowing & care: Sow under glass from mid-March or directly outdoors from mid-April and cover only a little with soil (light germination). Keep the soil moist until germination. Schizanthus likes a sunny location and needs a common garden soil. Then they bloom for many weeks from June onwards.
