Chinese Pagodas provide a very charming effect in front of flower beds or scattered under trees, or as a bulb cover. They can also be grown in pots or can be used as rock garden plants. They bloom heavily from spring thru early summer bearing whorls of 1" long snapdragon-like flowers that are white on the 2-lobed upper lip & lavender-purple on the lower lip. The flowers look stunning in cut bouquets.
These adaptable plants grow between 16 to 24 inches high, will grow in partial shade and are very tolerant of dry soils. Very easy from seed.
Surface sow at 50-60 degrees Fahrenheit. Germination 2-3 weeks. Start inside for earlier blooms and sow outside after all danger of frost.
