    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.

    • I found the juicy fruit series here in the Pacific NW to mix well with petunias & other hanging basket/container annuals. Since one of our best nurseries went out of business, I have substituted other nemesia with no luck. I have tried shipping but most plants never recover from the shock. I never thought it would be hard to find these favorites--so many different varieties seem to be lost to me. All the flax varieties we used to choose from?
