Clarkia – Elegant Red
$2.50 – $69.75
Mountain Garland is native to the western United States. This flower comes in a variety of fluorescent shades of pinks, purples and whites. Mountain Garland is a close relative of Godetia. This plant grows 2-3 feet tall in the Northwest and may need support once full-grown. Zones 1-11 provide good growing climate. The buds bloom from the lower portions of the long stems to the top. Mountain Garland makes an excellent cut flower and will last longer if it is cut when the flowers are just starting to bloom at the bottom of the stem and there are a lot of buds left to open on the top. This flower is brilliantly colored and stunningly bright. Plant it in a sunlit area that receives partial shade. Like its relative, the Godetia, it will not survive when planted in an arid or humid climate. Also like the Godetia, this flower needs soil that is lacking in nutrients; otherwise it will be overwhelmed with a lot of foliage and few blooms. Soil that is low in nitrogen supports this flower particularly well. Mountain Garland needs to be planted outdoors and does not transplant well. It should be planted in the spring, but if you are located in zones 7-10 you can also plant it in the fall.
