    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.

    Breeding is what makes this German breakthrough like nothing else on the market. The colors range from glowing bright hues to the softest pastels. Sunsatia holds its own in both cool and hot temperatures, and is outstanding in hanging baskets, combos, and window boxes.

    • I always look for the trailing plants that mix well with petunias etc. This bright red nemesia fills that requirement perfectly. Hanging baskets & containers just don't look good with plants that don't spread out. Compact is OK for a single plant in a pot but they don't play well with others!

      Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
    • First time growing this plant this year. I love it! It's getting a.m. sun until noon and stretching toward the light as it's in a window box, but it's growing like gangbusters. Nice bright color against coleus and lime green potato vine. Definitely going to get it again next year.

    • I bought 2 gangly looking 4 inch pots as filler plants because they were on sale. Much to my surprise they filled the pot beautifully and the fragrance was a wonderful surprise! Gorgeous little plant and going to buy more!

      Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
    • Most underused plant in the greenhouse. Flowers all summer with little or no attention. I use it in all my container mixes
