It is an easy to grow wildflower

Note: All plant parts are poisonous in large doses, especially the seeds, that contain up to 1.4% of alkaloids.

Sowing advice

Seedlings do not transplant well, so it is best sown directly in spring outside into prepared soil. The fine seeds should germinate on the surface of soil.  14-21 days for germination. You may plant in a greenhouse, late summer/autumn for the following year. If germination does not occur try cold stratification for 2 weeks. Move to -4-+4°C for 2-4 weeks then return to warmth. Heat is not required for germination, in fact high temperatures can cause dormancy.
