Charming, low-growing, and full of personality, Baby Blue Eyes looks dazzling planted en masse in rockeries or as edging. This flower has many great uses: window boxes, hanging baskets, any container, in between rows in the vegetable garden, also mixes particularly well with other self-sowing annuals. Attractive to bees and other beneficial insects. It is easy to plant and grow Baby Blue eyes “Nemophila” seeds.

Direct sow Baby Blue Eyes Nemophila seeds in early spring, when a risk of frost is still possible. Cool, moist, light, well-drained soil is best. Grow in partial shade where summer soils get hot. Plants can die from excessive heat. Nemophila may self sow if conditions are right. Barely cover the tiny seeds. Aim for plant spacing at 10cm (4″). Tighter spacing is okay for this small species. Sow short rows every three weeks in sprint and enjoy a carpet of sky blue all summer long. This versatile native American wildflower (also known as California Blue Bells) grows to 10-15cm (4-6") tall.

The genus name "Nemophila" comes from the Latin words for "woodland loving." The species name "menziesii" honors Archibald Menzies, the appointed naturalist of several extended voyages in the late 18th century. Menzies brought back a number of new species, including this wildflower. Nemophila menziesii. 200+ Organic seeds.

~ Sowing ~

Direct sow in early spring, when a risk of frost is still possible, pressing lightly into the surface of the soil since this seed needs light to germinate. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination, which should occur within 10-20 days. When the seedlings can safely be handled, thin or transplant for wider spacing. For an early start, start the seed indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost and transplant outdoors (although direct dowing is easiest).

~ Growing ~

Keep the young plants watered until they become established; mature plants tolerate drought well, though they will benefit from occasional watering. This annual grows quickly and dies with the first frost, though it may reseed for a new crop next year. Its neat, sprawling growth habit makes it an excellent choice for massed plantings, containers, and borders. Keep in mind that this plant does not do well in excessive heat and dislikes being transplanted. These blooms attract butterflies and bees.

~Harvesting ~

These short-lived blossoms do not make good cut flowers, and are best enjoyed in the wild.
