Continuously flowered from May-Oct. (with 2x/month trimming/deadheading of flower stalks.) Easy to care for, provided pops of bright color at short to medium height in part shade. Only drawback: during periods of heavy (1+" per day) rain, this variety, as well as the white, blue, red and blue/yellow flowering varieties of Nemisia, tend to suffer from stem rot. This could be remedied by providing excellent drainage and siting plants in more sun than shade, to give the stems a chance to dry out between rain storms. This is one of my new favorite go-to plants for annual bedding.
- Part Sun to Sun
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).

Use in hanging baskets, window boxes, landscaping and combinations.Maintenance Notes:
Self-cleaning, no deadheading necessary. Plants may be trimmed back with a sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears at anytime, although this is not usually necessary. Plants may flush out of flower if night temperatures begin to stay in the upper 70's or above. If this happens a light trim to shape them would be good. The trim will increase branching and will result in more flowers once the temperatures fall and the plants begin flowering again.
A yearly application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.Aromance® Pink Nemesia fruticans 'INNEMAROPI' USPPAF, Can PBRAF

I can't stop raving over this nemesia! I have never had a nemesia that smelled so heavenly, most nemesia I find I don't have much smell but this one does as well as having pretty blooms. I will be planting several next year!Jennifer Winship, British Columbia, Canada, 31 weeks ago
