Blushing Princess is cold tolerant and heat tolerant. She is very vigorous so pair her with other vigorous plants.

Blushing Princess is a "heavy drinker" and will prefer evenly moist soil. It will be quick to show drought stress, but should bounce back quickly once re-hydrated. In a hanging basket you should be prepared to water often, maybe more than once a day during warm weather. Plants are easier to keep moist when planted in large planters. Due to her water needs, Blushing Princess is ideal for use in larger planters. In containers an application of continuous release fertilizer at planting is best. To help maximize performance use applications of a well-balanced water-soluble fertilizer (according to package directions) starting in mid-summer.

Blushing Princess will also perform well in the landscape where she will function as an annual, full sun, groundcover.

While plants shouldn't need to be trimmed back, if she is taking over your walkway or is looking less than her best a trim can be administered at anytime. Use a sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears as needed.

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