Five Spot flowers prefer colder climates and need to be planted in an area with full, direct sunlight that provides only partial shade. They require cool, moist soil that is not rich in nutrients. When planting in warmer climates this flower needs heavy shade so that it does not die, it has a low tolerance level for high temperatures. It can handle light, but not direct, sunlight and would do well if planted on the north side of a building. This flower thrives in Oregon when planted in the fall. It blooms from early spring until the end of May, when the weather is still wet but providing full sunlight. This flower is native to California. Five Spot typically grows in crowded clumps. When located in zones 7-13 plant this flower in the fall, in other areas you need to wait to plant it until spring. This flower works well when potted outside, or put in hanging baskets and it can be started successfully in a greenhouse.
Five Spot flowers are grown from seed. Directly sow seeds into your flower garden in the spring, after the danger of frost has past. You can also start them indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost in your area.

Sow seeds, 1/8" to 1/16" fine, loose soil.

For outdoor plantings, mark the planting spot, as germination can take up to three weeks.

Days to Germination: 7- 20

Space seeds or seedlings 6" apart.
