Delightful long, Decorative tassels in red shades, Ponytails are so named because of the super long flower tassels that hang down 2′-3′ long and sway lazily in the breeze all summer long. Ideal for adding height and interest to summer bedding displays. The cut flowers last well in water and can also be dried. If this is done carefully the flowers keep their color for some time. For pot plants provide a humid atmosphere.
Sowing: Sow 4-6 weeks before the last frost. Barely cover the seed. Bottom water or mist to avoid covering seeds with displaced soil. Harden off by growing at 62-65°F (17-18°C) and transplant outside after the last frost. Direct sow: After the last frost, sow thinly, barely covering the seed. When seedlings have their first true leaves, thin to 12-15″ apart.
