As the name would imply, ‘Candy Floss’ produces flowers in a most delicious blend of colours. Shades of peach, salmon, and coral are held up very well on strong stems. Blooms produce an equally delicious scent. Combines well with other colours in the garden or vase.

How to sow:
Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before planting outdoors. Harden off and transplant outdoors with the late frosts of spring. Seedlings won’t be harmed by a late frost. Seeds may also be direct sown in early spring as soon as the soil can be worked. Pinch seedlings when 6” tall.
Select a planting site with rich, well-draining soil. Provide plants with climbing support. Deadhead regularly to ensure continuous bloom. Keep plants well-watered through warmer weather. 75-85 days to maturity.
