    Maintenance Notes: 

    No dead-heading necessary for continuous bloom.

    Frosty Knight is cold tolerant and heat tolerant.

    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.

    He will also perform well in the landscape where he will function as an annual, full sun, groundcover.

    While plants shouldn't need to be trimmed back, if he is taking over your walkway or is looking less than his 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.

    • I didn't get a lot of blooms but it was a nice filler due to the foliage. I didn't notice any scent though.

      Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
    • Outstanding performance in both baskets and in the ground where it is spectacular filling in empty spaces between my zinnias and cascading over the stone edging. Over two feet across and standing up to both full sun and the heavy rains we have had. Plentiful white flowers and the variegated foliage is an added bonus. 10+.
