Plant alone or in combinations in all container types.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.Sunsatia® Coconut Nemesia hybrid 'INTRAIWHITWO' USPP 23,087, Can 4,347
