Sanvitalia procumbens. Easy to grow: Direct-sow seeds in full to partial sunlight after the last frost date, just pressing the seeds lightly into the soil, as light is needed for germination, or raise as transplants 6 to 8 weeks before transplanting out after threat of frost has passed. Provide even moisture and strong light. Harden off the seedlings by gradually acclimating them outside over 1 to 2 weeks before transplanting out. Once seedlings are 2" tall, thin or transplant 5" to 6" apart. This mat-forming miniature sunflower look-a-like thrives in heat and humidity. A great annual groundcover, it’s also a wonderful plant for containers. Early summer- to fall-flowering. Height: 4" to 8".
