The Story of Cupplant

This prairie plant is native to the easter and central regions of North America. It is also sometimes known as “compass plant”, “squareweed”, or “Indian cup”.

 This variety can be started indoors in soil trays or pots 6-8 weeks before planting them outside. The seeds benefit from being sown just under the surface of the soil. Then you should place the pots in plastic bags and refrigerate them for 30 days. The seeds will take around 10-14 days to germinate. These prairie plants will do best when transplanted outdoors after the danger of frost has passed in your region. We recommend that you plant them in full sun to partial shade about 3-5 feet apart.
