Start indoors 4-6 weeks before first frost. Transplant outside after threat of frost has passed, 12-18 inches apart. Indian blanket only reaches 12-18 inches in height, so consider using it as a border if planting it with taller flowers. Indian Blanket tolerates dry, drought-like conditions and prefers full sun, but will do fine in partial shade as well. Flowers have long, thin stems and can be used as a cut flower, but will only last a few days. The immature seed head is also a great addition to bouquets.
