Maintenance Notes: 

These heat loving plants are a great choice for hot climates, especially those with high night temperatures.

Often plants that look great in the nursery don't always hold up in your yard because they can't take the heat and dry summer season. Sundaze are drought tolerant Australian outback plants with superior performance even under low water conditions.

An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.

These Yellow and Orange bi-color blooms can make a huge statement in a container or garden.
