Care instructions:

Keep watering the planting until you see sprouts, then keep watering it regularly until the plant is established. Seedlings do not have the strength to survive even a brief drought.

The plants tolerate partial shade and need 4 hours a day of direct sunlight. Will grow to about 3'.
