Pardancanda Seed Germination How to Sow Pardancanda:
  • Best sown indoors at alternating temperatures of 68 and 86° or 55 and 72°

  • In northern areas, grow as an annual
  • If sowing seed outdoors, we recommend a maximum planting depth of 4X the width of the seed

How to Grow Pardancanda:
Transplanting: Transplant when there are at least two sets of true leaves

Spacing: Space seedlings 1 foot apart, making sure that the rhizomes are covered by at least 1 inch of soil

Temperature Very tolerant of heat and humidity

Soil: Use normal, loamy, moist, well-drained soil. Keep the soil evenly moist and the plants moderately fertilized (neither heavy feeders, nor tolerant of poor soils)

Additional Care: Mulch to provide winter protection in Zones 5 and 6

Appearance and Use:

A good flower for cutting fresh and bringing indoors, it also serves as an interesting accent in the border. Plants are clump forming and upright from 2-4 feet tall. The tall, linear foliage grows directly from the rhizomatous roots. The 3-4 inch, 6-petaled flowers appear from mid-summer through mid-fall and come in mixed colors
