Orral and Joan Craig discovered this variety growing in an Amish garden near Arthur, IL. Beautiful large red heads on compact 1-foot tall plants. I first saw this variety growing at Seed Savers farm in Iowa and was much taken by the color and beauty.

Sow in place in spring, or start plants indoors and grow for several weeks, setting out after last frost, transplanting carefully. Plants require full sun, rich soil and moderate soil moisture. Space plants about one foot apart. Picking spent blooms prolongs bloom season.
