Scaevola (Fan Flower) skee-VO-luh
Fan flower (Scaevola aemula), also known simply as scaevola, is an excellent plant for any region with warm summers. Scaevola is a sprawling plant with oval or lance-shaped leaves and, given a hot climate, it will produce a nearly non-stop display of dark blue fan-shaped flowers from early summer right up to frost. Scaevola plants fill a niche for gardeners seeking a heat-tolerant plant for their summer containers; its thick stems ensure drought tolerance in full sun locations, even in triple-digit temperatures. Your plants will be low-maintenance performers as long as you give them warmth, sunshine and an occasional drink.
