List of files and visuals associated with this text.

Bachelor buttons are reliable plants producing many white, red, pink and blue flowers. They have no special soil requirements and grow in full sun or partial shade. Remove the old flowers to prolong the blooming season. Tall plants tend to sprawl without some support. The plants will grow one to three feet high and are spaced 12 to 14 inches apart. Bachelor Button is useful in flower arrangements.

Plant seed directly into the garden since transplanting is difficult. Germination takes one to two weeks.
