Layia Platyglossa 'Tidy Tips' - 20x Seeds 

Tidy tips wildflowers are a great addition to the sunny landscape where poor soil makes it difficult to grow pretty flowers.

Tidy tips wildflowers are an annual flowering plant producing daisy-like blooms on a stout, succulent stem. As with other succulents, the stems of tidy tips wildflowers hold and disperse water as needed by the plant.

This makes caring for tidy tips simple. Often, when growing tidy tips, you’ll find this annual flower lives on existing rainfall once established. Tidy tips wildflowers are a member of the Aster family. Botanically, they’re called Layia platyglossa.

Grows to around 30cm tall.

Tidy tips planting is simple. Broadcast seeds onto poor soil with good drainage and cover lightly. Seeds of the tidy tips wildflowers need light to germinate. When growing tidy tips, the optimum temperature for germination is 70 to 75 degrees F. (21-24 C.). It is helpful to cover seeds with a screen until they take hold and sprout, as birds love the seeds and will readily scoop them up if given the chance. Seeds usually germinate in 10 to 30 days.
