How To Grow Hoary Skullcap Wildflowers From Seeds
# 1 | Direct sow in late fall, pressing into the surface of the soil. For spring planting, mix the seeds with moist sand and store in the refrigerator for 30 days before planting.
# 2 | Keep the soil consistently moist until germination, which is notoriously slow and irregular.
# 3 | Water seedlings occasionally until they become established. This plant adapts well to either dry or moist soil, and also tolerates sandy and clay soils.
#4 | For extended blooming, deadhead blossoms. This plant attracts hummingbirds and bumblebees.
