PLACEMENT & CULTIVATION
Wallflower 'Fair Lady' combines deep rich shades and unique pastel hues, all sweetly fragrant, in a mix that is welcome in cottage gardens and along the edge of paths and borders, wherever sharply drained soils can be provided. An uncommon vintage flower that stars in spring gardens; remove after bloom to make way for summer annuals.
About 1" per week; do not overwater. May tolerate some drought once established.
If soil is poor, mix in a few inches of compost prior to planting.
When to Cut for Bouquets:
Cut when 1/2 of florets are open.
