In zones 8-9 plant out in early spring. Seed will benefit from a light frost. Plant in mid summer to early fall in all areas for bloom the following spring. Over seed existing lawn by scratching the soil surface with a rake or small rototiller, then scatter the seed. Blooms best in cool weather, generally a flush of flowers in spring and fall.
