Five spot wildflowers are named for their distinct flowers: 2.5 cm light blue on white blossoms of five petals, each of which is tipped with a vivid, deep purple spot. They are reasonably compact plants that grow to 30 cm high and 20 cm wide and do not spread over the course of the summer. They prefer cool climates, germinating best in soil temperatures of 13-18 C. Perfect for cool springs. They should be able to survive if given lots of shade. They are annuals, and they’ll die back with the first frost. If allowed to die back naturally they reseeds and you will have new plants next year. They bloom consistently and impressively all spring long.
