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.

  • I bought 4 of the Flirtation Orange from an online nursery. They arrived as if they were going to die soon. But not only they survived, they are thriving in my yard. They are very rewarding and keep blooming almost all through the year! I have clay soil and I have planted them where 2 of them are getting full sun and the other 2 are in partial sun. But they are behaving the same giving beautiful orange flowers month after month. This is the second winter for them and so far they are doing very well. I live in the Bay Area in CA. The best small plant I have ever had! 5 stars to Flirtation Orange!

  • I planted this in a mixed container with a dwarf red and yellow canna, deep purple annual salvia, lime sweet potato and dwarf yellow dahlias. It's mid-October in Denver and the diascia has gone through 3 hard freezes followed by a wonderful Indian summer and is still absolutely gorgeous.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.

  • My new favorite plant. Tried it for the first time this past year and it was a constant bloomer after multiple frosts - and cold ones at that! Planning on trying more colors this year as orange was the only one I've tried

  • Bought several different colours - all doing great, except the colour fades on some of the petals towards the end of their bloom - otherwise, beautiful.

    Satisfactory Average performance, met expectations but not outstanding.
