Excelsior hybrids have rich shades of pink to lavender pink, light pink, and pure white flowers that completely cover the stem. This biennial flowering plant blooms in June and July and self-seeds. Rich, moist soil is suitable for these plants. Enable seeds to form on plants, and they will frequently self-sow to produce future generations. New plants can be moved easily in their first season, when they are still small. Plants can need to be staked during flowering season.
