Great flowers for large groups. A plant with erect densely branched stems. The flowers are axillary, double, similar to miniature roses, of different colors.

Does not tolerate fresh manure. Frost-resistant, moderately moisture-loving.

Shoots dive in 3 seedlings in 9 cm pots and are kept in greenhouses before planting in the ground, which must be thoroughly ventilated.
Shoots appear in 10-14 days. Landing in the ground is carried out necessarily with a large wet clod of earth, maintaining a distance between plants of 20-25 cm.
Plant transplantation is easily tolerated only at an early age. Planted in a permanent place at the end of May, hardened plants are not afraid of light frosts.
To obtain compact, profusely flowering bushes, pinch the tops of young plants at a height of 12 cm, after which they branch well and are completely covered with flowers.
Usage: for group plantings, flowerbeds, flowerbeds and cutting. She is especially good in bouquets. You can cut off small branches, or pull out the whole plant.
Having cut off the roots and lower leaves, it is immediately put into the water. In the vases of the Clarkia, all the buds are blooming.
