Days to Germination:10-20 days
Limonium sinuatum. This popular cut flower prefers to be started indoors 8 to 10 weeks before the last frost date. Sow seed in a good seed-starting medium at 70°F with even moisture, strong light and good ventilation. When the seedlings are 3" tall, acclimate them by gradually exposing them to outside conditions for 1 to 2 weeks. The seedlings may be transplanted into the garden once the threat of frost has passed. Statice may also be sown directly into the garden. Thin or space plants 12" apart in the garden in well-draining, loamy soil and full sunlight. For use as a dried flower, harvest the sprays when the florets are just three-quarters open and hang them upside down in a well-ventilated spot out of the sun. Summer flowering. Height: 2' to 3'.
