One of our showiest wildflowers! Enhance an early summer border or bed in full or part sun with gorgeous Godetia (Farewell-to-Spring). Satiny, cup-shaped blooms are a good two inches wide and add eye-catching shades of lavender, pink, crimson and white to wildflower meadows, borders & mass displays. This easy to grow, drought-tolerant, annual blooms profusely. Thrives in cool mountainous regions where it will resist pesky deer. Mixes well with other natives such as California Poppy, Blue Lupine and Tidy Tips. Nice for cut flowers too, it was named for Captain Clark during the Lewis & Clark expedition of 1804!
