Frost hardy with nice fragrance. Can be sheared for second flush after which plant becomes in sightly. Performs best when sown in-situ. Comes up very easily even in difficult conditions. Planting distance about 3-4 inches. Blooms early and will finish early, so you might have to replace with some other annual if you want some color in mid-late spring at its location.
