    • I have tried to grow scaevola two years now, last year in the ground, this year in hanging pots, in sunny locations. Both times have been disastrous, with all the plants dying after just a few weeks. I kept them watered, watering them the same as the rest of my flowers. Perhaps it was too much water, I don't know. But until I can learn the secret to keeping these alive I'm not going to plant them again.

    • I LOVE the sceavola plant, it looks GREAT mixed with another flower such as a geranium in a taller container for the patio/deck. I haven't been able to find any sceavolas in my area for a couple years now!! What's up with that??

    • I raised this plant for the first time last year. It was fabulous and easy to raise. Lots of blooms pouring over the side of the pot. It's hardy and I would recommend it to anyone.
