Pennie Black Nemophila

Pennie Black (Nemophila Discoidalis) - Start Pennie Black seeds for this lovely low-growing annual that has a trailing habit. Nemophila Pennie Black, also known as Nemophila Baby Black Eyes, is a superb, easy to grow annual with masses of small, 1 inch deep violet to black flowers that are edged with white. The Victorians loved this tiny two-toned flower with light, airy foliage. The Nemophila Penny Black plant only reaches 4 inches in height and is slightly trailing, so it is perfect for containers, baskets, and window boxes, or use it as an edging for borders or a ground cover plant.

Nemophila Penny Black seeds can be sown directly outdoors in a prepared seedbed. Lightly cover the flower seed with soil and keep moist. Nemophila seeds can be started indoors in the late winter for transplanting outside once frost season is over. In milder climates, Nemophila Penny Black will reseed itself for the following season. Nemophila care includes deadheading the spent flowers to promote continual flowers and following a regular watering schedule to keep the plant from drying out.
