Blooms the first year from seed.
White bells circle the stem, throats are spotted with pale freckles which darken with age. Each plant produces large center spikes with several side shoots. Seeds are palleted for ease of handling. Though technically a perennial it is best to treat this variety as a hardy annual as often winter survival is poor. These are early summer flowering often with a second flush later on.
