By seed at 70°F, requires light to germinate. Will self-sow if you let it go to seed (ill advised).

Disease Aphids love this plant.
Harvest Cut Sweet Annie before flowers open.
Drying Hang Sweet Annie upside down in dry, dark, open, airy place.
Uses Sweet Annie is a excellent dried flower filler. Used extensively as a dried flower wreath and swag base.
