    Maintenance Notes: 

    Deadheading not necessary for continuous bloom. Plants will "bury their dead" (new flowers will quickly cover old flowers) so no deadheading necessary.

    An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.

    • I just discovered these little gems last summer. I found them at a nursury just outside of Portland, Or while my husband was recovering from surgury in a nearby hospital. They bloom their little hearts out from Spring thru late Fall. I can't wait to find them again this year. They are a beautiful addition to any garden.

      Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
    • We tried this plant in an iron pedestal pot on our southwest facing deck a few years ago, and it did great. Every year since I have searched it out, and we use it in all but one container on our deck this year. I can't believe that every nursery does not carry it! Sanvitalia, or Creeping Zinnia, is a wonderful filler/trailer that requires no deadheading but blooms all summer long. We love it!

    • One of the nicest and easy plants I've grown. Love the green eye against the yellow pedals. Would like seed available to start for myself in my personal greenhouse.

    • This is my second year with these plants in large containers, so a great perennial in my area. They are in an extremely hot and sunny location in the yard, yet they tolerate lack of water and recover quickly if forgotten. Awesome!
