Best germinate in late fall, second best in early spring.

以秋播為主,春播次之.

1.Keep seeds in freezer for one month.

1.冰箱冷凍1個月.

2.Get seeds out from freezer, sow the seeds on the moisten potting soil in a container with lid or cover the container with clear plastic bag to keep the soil moist.   Place the container in partial shade, warm location.  Check and open for air circulation once a day.  Seeds will sprout in about 2 weeks.

2.取出種子直播於盛培養土已澆水的透水小盒,用透明塑膠袋連盒子整個封起. 置半日照溫暖處. 每天檢查+開封透氣. 注意不可過濕. 約2週內發芽.

3.Transplant seedlings to individual pot or in the ground when they have 4-6 leaves.  Full sun.

3發芽後除去塑膠袋後分別種小盆,待本葉長到4-6片,移到光線佳的全日照處種植或地植.

From seeds to flower usually next year will happen, in the worst case, the 3rd year will flower.

從種子種出到開花一般是隔年就能開花,如果錯過開花季節的話第3年會開花.

Super easy to grow, very hardy flowering vine! Best in full sun to partial shade location. Large amount of small white fragrant flowers from mid summer to frost. Flowers attract bees and butterflies. Flowers are good for cut flower. Its flowers have sweet fragrance similar with vanilla. I notice it is only noticeable when plant blooms large amount of flowers.

It is cold hardy and tolerant heat. USDA Zones:5-9. (But some believes it is 4-10/11.) Mature size:20-30′(H) x 1′(W). Easy to propagate from seeds, layering or cutting. It is tricky because thin stem (some people had done it) but it is possible to graft Clematis vine. Imagine a strong clematis vine with different varieties graft together, it will bloom almost whole year with different color flowers.. 🙂

Suggest Care: Cut back 1/3 in the early winter to promote more new shoots in spring.

超容易栽種,非常強健的蔓藤花卉! 以全日照到半日照處栽種為佳. 仲夏到結霜的這段時間是花期,開大量芳香的小白花,花香要花量夠多才會明顯,香甜的花香像是香草.

耐寒又耐熱. 成熟株高可達20-30呎,寬1呎. 容易以種子,壓條,扦插來繁殖. 雖然因其莖細,難度較高但是有人已做過,證明是可以嫁接鐵線蓮的.–想像一下粗壯的鐵線蓮可以一年到頭開不同顏色和品種的花.. 🙂

植株的維護建議:初冬時由開花處末端剪除三分之一,以刺激來春分枝以達到分化更多會開花的新芽.

Unique annual with a cute name! 🙂 Easy to grow from seeds. It prefers full sun to partial shade location in moist soil. Self-seeds easily. Summer to frost with pink chain like flowers. I have seen its mature height from 1′-7′, but according to my research it can grow up to 20′.

紅蓼是很容易栽種的一年生草花. 它喜歡全日照到半日照的環境,溼潤的土壤. 容易自行結子繁殖,夏天到秋末霜降,花期很長.
