Growing Hints: Floss flowers can be somewhat difficult to start from seed, so buying seedlings is recommended. Plant in early spring after the danger of frost has passed. Space dwarf varieties from 4 to 6 inches apart and taller varieties from 10 to 20 inches apart. Soil should be kept moist (not wet) throughout growing season. Pinch seedlings back to encourage more vigorous growth later on.
Interesting Facts: In some regions, Floss flowers can become invasive from reseeding. To avoid this, keep spent flower heads trimmed.
