Nemesia Aromance® Mulberry

Nemesia  nuh-MEE-zhuh

Proven Winners Aromance® Mulberry:

Highly fragrant plum colored flowers all season; excellent for early Spring and would be a great choice for Fall as well. Self-cleaning, no deadheading necessary. 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.

Description

Nemesia  nuh-MEE-zhuh

Nemesias are colorful annuals bearing wonderfully fragrant, vibrant flowers from late spring right through to autumn. Nemesias originate from South Africa and are frost-tender. They flower in a range of colors, including orange, red, pink, purple, blue and white, often with contrasting centers; some have bi-colored flowers. Full sun and free-draining soil are essential for nemesias to flower well as poorly drained soil can result in root and stem rots. Plant nemesias in patio pots, window boxes, hanging baskets and in raised beds, as well as in the ground as long as the soil is well drained. They make excellent partners with other summer-flowering patio plants or can be grown on their own or in small groups. Plant in a sunny spot after the frosts in well-drained soil. Deadhead to encourage more blooms.
