EXCLUSIVE – The tiny fragrant flowers of Gulf Winds grow in soft clusters that soon form a ground-covering pastel tapestry in rose, soft pink, lilac and white. Easy to grow and blooming in just 6 to 8 weeks, compact, 4 to 6 inch Gulf Winds makes a perfect carpet in rose or bulb beds or to fill in containers or soften garden borders. The flowers’ sweet nectar attracts butterflies and pollinators of all kinds and their honey-scent perfumes the air throughout summer.

Plant in early spring in well worked garden soil in a sunny spot. Sow seeds 1 to 2 inches apart and barely cover. Keep evenly moist while awaiting germination. Seedlings will grow into a carpet of fine textured leaves, followed by a blanket of soft flowers.


Sow indoors 3 to 4 weeks before last frost in a large container. Broadcast seeds 1/2 to 1 inch apart. When seedlings are well established and the danger of frost is over, separate clusters of 4 to 5 seedlings and plant each cluster 3 to 5 inches apart in the garden.


Given ordinary garden soil and even moisture, Gulf Winds grows and blooms quickly, but will stay compact. After the first flush of intense flowering is over, cut plants half way to re-bloom abundantly. In mild winter areas, sow again in the fall around bulbs, in containers, or to cover bare areas. Plants will grow and overwinter to bloom all spring in a pretty carpet of pastel shades.
