Description

Senorita Blanca is an annual that grows easily in well-drained average to dry soil, in full sun but tolerates some light shade. It is thornless, seedless, odorless, and does not have sticky foliage.

The plant grows up to 4 feet tall and has weak stems so it should be planted with lower-growing flowers that will add support. The silvery-white flowers are showy and bloom all season. Because they are sterile there is no need to deadhead except for looks.  It is heat and drought tolerant and resistant to deer.

Use Senorita Blanca to add height to landscape beds or as a center thriller in combination pots.
