Bachelor Button – Dwarf Polka Dot Mix


This mix is a colorful blend of vivid blue, pink, purple and white knee-high Bachelor Buttons.  The Bachelor Button prefers full sun and well-drained soil.  It is a resilient annual flower and can be fall planted in zones 7-10.  This flower will have better success if started outdoors, although it can typically survive if started indoors.  The Bachelor Button is one of the easiest flowers to start from seed and makes an excellent cut flower.  We also have a taller variant, Bachelor Button – Polka Dot Mix, as well as many individual colors.  Some people prefer the dwarf variety over the tall because the tall can sometimes get too tall and it falls over.  Having a dwarf variety, the plant stays more compact, and the blooms tend to stay closer together.
