Grow a garden filled with Globe Gilia, from freshly harvested Gilia capitata flower seeds. Globe Gilia is native to most of the Western states. It will produce indigo colored flowers all through the summer months. The plants display dark green foliage, growing to a mature height of roughly 12 to 24 inches tall. Globe Gilia blooms consist of 50 to 100 smaller blooms, which create one large globe like flower. These plants are fairly drought tolerant once established, and are adored by many beneficial insects as well. Due to its sweet scent, bumblebees, butterflies, honeybees & hummingbirds will cling to these beauties throughout its life span.

Globe Gilia, also known as "Queen Annes Thimble” or “Blue Thimble Flower,” is categorized as an annual flowering plant. Annual plants will grow quickly from seed, bloom profusely through the summer months and later die with the first frost. Seeds can be collected at the end of the season to regrow the following Spring. Seeds from the Globe Gilia flower can also drop to the bare ground beneath, naturally regrowing the following year.

Globe Gilia wildflowers are great in flower beds, pots & containers, along driveways, roadsides, walkways and even in a naturalized setting. They look especially beautiful when sown by the masses. Try adding similar wildflowers to your garden filled with Globe Gilia, for a sea of gorgeous blue blooms. Wildflowers such as Chinese Forget-Me-Not, Perennial Lupine, Chicory and California Bluebell are great additions.

Sowing The Seed

Globe Gilia is best sown directly outdoors when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed. Remove all unwanted plant life from your sowing area, turning the dirt or replacing it with new dirt. Scatter the tiny Globe Giliar seeds to the surface of the soil, allowing direct sunlight to reach them. This is crucial for a successful germination.

Growing Conditions

Globe Gilia is best established in an area of full sunlight to light shade. Temperatures should be kept at roughly 70F to 75F for optimal growth. Globe Gilia enjoys a fairly rich soil with a decent amount of moisture, however it is pretty well adapted to most soils and sowing mediums. Just make sure that the soil is well drained. To increase drainage, we recommend adding a light compost to areas containing hard, compact soil.

Germination & Growth

Your Globe Gilia seeds will begin to germinate within roughly 7 to 14 days after sowing. The plants will reach a mature height of roughly 12 to 24 inches tall and can grow to a width of 2 feet wide. Space seeds and plants a good 6 to 12 inches apart from one another. Globe Gilia will produce mounds of smaller, lilac blue colored flowers, atop attractive green foliage.
