PACKET LABEL INSTRUCTIONS: Start in very sandy soil and water daily. Germinates best after fire treatment: wet soil and flat well and then build a small kindling fire on the top of the soil; allow the fire to burn out. Plant seedlings 2 ft apart in a dry sunny spot. Will overwinter in a warm dry climate but should be grown in a large container and brought indoors for winter in other climates.
