Leptosiphon Mix (Leptosiphon Hybrida French Hybrids Mix) - Start Leptosiphon seeds to start these dainty little flowers. Leptosiphon French Hybrids has the synonymous botanical name Linanthus androsaceus. This low-growing annual has fern-like foliage and hundreds of sweet little half inch star-shaped flowers that shine out from the foliage. The colors are mixed and bright in shades of rose, yellow, orange and cream. Leptosiphon uses include edging the front of the flower bed, containers, edging a pathway, or as a ground cover. Commonly known as False Baby Stars, this annual is lovely if it is allowed to spill over the edges of rocks or containers. It makes a carpet of color and is stunning!

Grow Leptosiphon seeds directly outside in a prepared seedbed after frost danger has passed. Press the flower seed into the soil and lightly cover. False Baby Stars flowers perform best in full sun, and they prefer rich, well-draining soil.
