    Maintenance Notes: 

    Self-cleaning, no deadheading necessary. Sunsatia do not like to have wet feet so be sure to plant them in places with good drainage. For most people planting them in containers will be easier than planting in the ground. However, if you do have excellent drainage in your ground beds, for instance if you use raised beds, they will also flourish in the ground.

    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.

    For masses of much-needed color in spring and fall, try cold tolerant Sunsatia® Blood Orange Nemesia. This cultivar is incredibly vigorous and more heat tolerant than most Nemesias, bearing fiery red-orange blossoms from early spring until frost. Try it in containers or in hanging baskets paired with Anytime Pansiolas and Knight Lobularias.

    • So far I have a Lemon (yellow) and the blood orange, these flowers are simply beautiful. I am planning to have all four colors as soon as my local Lowes has them. I tend to plant them together with my calibrachoa (in the same container). Together both plants make my garden beautiful.

    • Bought a Full Flat Of this Annual, Planted my first baskets within 2 days, and they look beautiful today and have no issues. Planted my hanging Baskets about 7 days after purchase, and all these flowers died?? Cannot figure it out?

      Satisfactory Average performance, met expectations but not outstanding.
    • Grows beautifully even in the hot, dry Kentucky summer. Definitely recommend to anyone that loves or even only kinda likes flowers. They stand a little tall making for great definition in a flower pot so everything isn't so low. 10/10
