Hummingbirds seek out and flock to Coral Nymph plants literally from dawn to dusk, and sprays of these charming flowers are lovely in mixed bouquets. Coral Nymph grows readily in a wide range of conditions and blooms continuously throughout summer. Ideal for big containers or as easy-care, free-flowering border plants.

FOR BEST RESULTS START EARLY INDOORS
Start seeds indoors 4 to 6 weeks before last expected frost date. Sow seeds 1 inch apart in a container of seed starting mix and cover very lightly. Keep moist but not soggy and provide a strong light source. When seedlings are large enough to handle, acclimate gradually to outdoor conditions. Transplant 8 inches apart in garden beds once night temperatures are above 50°F (10°C).
For Container Growing: Plant 4 seedlings per 20 inch pot; 3 plants per 16 inch pot; or 1 plant per 8 inch pot.
TO GROW OUTDOORS
Sow in a well-worked seed bed or in containers in full sun when all danger of frost is past and weather is warm and settled. Space seeds 4 inches apart, cover very lightly. Keep soil evenly moist while awaiting germination in 10 to 14 days. Thin to 8 inches apart so seedlings have room to grow and mature.
This improved Dutch cultivar is compact, growing in graceful sprays just 2 feet tall. Plants grow quickly and bloom early to flower all summer long. Hummingbirds simply adore Coral Nymph’s nectar rich flowers and visit them constantly. Plants handle a wide range of conditions.
