Butterfly Flower

Butterfly Flower (Schizanthus x Wisetonensis Angel Wings) - Butterfly Flower seed is rewarding to grow and so attractive to butterflies! Schizanthus Angel Wings is a colorful orchid-like flower mix which stands above attractive fern-like foliage. It is an annual that is heavy blooming with dainty flowers that come in a variety of multi-marked colors: The colors include pink, red, lavender, rose, and bi-color, each with golden centers. Butterfly Flowers are ideal for mass planting, spots of color in the flower border or in containers. Schizanthus plants are showy and exotic looking adding lots of beauty wherever they are grown. Butterfly Flower is also commonly called Poor Man's Orchid.

Butterfly Flower seed is not difficult to establish. Start the flower seed indoors 6 - 8 weeks before the end of frost season. Lightly cover the flower seeds with soil. It's recommended to cover the starter trays with plastic to help hold moisture in. Water from underneath. Once seedlings emerge, remove the plastic. The Schizanthus plants can be transplanted once they have their 2nd set of true leaves. They prefer a full sun to partial shade setting.
