The flowers can be up to 4" - 6" and began blooming early to mid summer. This variety has extra large white flowers with a lilac cross. A great flower to attract pollinating insects to your garden. Honeybees find them irresistible! Freeze seeds for 48 hours before sowing to increase the germination rate. Full sun to partial shade.
