Maintenance Notes: 

Diascia is in the Snapdragon family and is an excellent choice for planting before the threat of frost has passed. If you do plant Diascia when it is still chilly outside, be sure to slowly introduce them to cool outdoor conditions, if they haven't already been acclimated to cool temperatures - ask the garden center if they have been "hardened off" when you buy them. They will bloom through the summer in many locations, but if night temperatures stay in the upper 70's or higher they may flush out of flower. Don't worry, as soon as night temperatures drop they should resume blooming. While the plants are out of flowers grab a sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears and give the plants a light "haircut". This will help tidy the plant and encourage additional branching which in turn will mean more flowers than ever when the plant begins to bloom again. In fact, anytime you think your Diascia might benefit from a trim, feel free. The plants will bounce back into flower quickly. Diascia are also a good fall flowering plant since they are capable of withstanding multiple frosts with little to no damage.

Self-cleaning, no deadheading necessary.

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

Their dainty but plentiful blooms and semi-trailing habit make Flirtation® Diascias a natural choice for filling baskets and containers with layers of flowers. Flirtation® Glacier White is the most heat tolerant of the series, and of course white goes with everything! This plant is great for early season plantings and winter flowering occurs in Sunbelt states.
