Partridge Peas as Annuals
When you hear a plant or flower is annual, it will last one season and then die back in the winter months, and the same plant will not resprout in the spring. These beauties are annuals because the same plants don't resprout, but they drop seedpods after the flowers are spent to reseed themselves for the following year. When the seed pods open, they twist violently in a corkscrew manner and toss the seeds one to five feet away.
How to Grow Partridge Pea in Your Garden
Start your flower garden indoors from seeds, fill a container with moist potting soil and plant the scarified seeds only about 1/2 inch deep. Place your container in an area to get morning sun and afternoon shade while keeping the ground moist until the seeds germinate. Germination takes a few weeks after the temperatures have warmed. After the second set of leaves emerges, you can transplant your plants into your garden after the last threat of frost.
Note: You may direct seed your plants 1/2 inch deep in your garden in the spring when all threats of frost are over.
These flowers require full sunlight of about 6 hours per day and well-drained soil, although they will tolerate the partial shade of about 6 hours per day. Your plants will grow to about two feet tall, although some may be shorter. Some of the best uses are for a butterfly and pollinator garden or border plants in the rear of a flowerbed filled with shorter flowers or greenery in front of it. Companion plants are any flower or shrub that has the same sun and water requirements.
