DIRECT SOWING: Sow seed outdoors in early April in clumps of 30 - 50 thinly sown seeds. Press seeds into the soil surface, do not cover. Thin seedlings when they are 1 in/ 25 mm high to 6 in/15 cm apart. Pick a cool semi-shaded, sandy area where the soil is rather low in nitrogen (poorly fertilized). Plants bloom profusely. Clarkia provides long lasting, decorative cut flowers!
