Sweet William is an old-fashioned cottage garden plant that usually grows as a self seeding biennial. This taller strain produces a mound of light green leaves, bearing showy clusters of bright crimson-red flowers with a contrasting white eye. Excellent as a cut flower.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Remove fading flowers to encourage more buds to form. Pruning plants back hard after blooming will encourage them to survive for another year. Self-sown seedlings may be moved in fall or early spring.
