Nemesia Foetans Poetry Blue


(Nemesia foetans ‘Poetry Blue’)


A compact, free flowering Nemesia with perfumed deep blue flowers.


Flowers profusely in spring and autumn and also in summer if grown in part shade. Winter flowers are not uncommon in mild climates.


Plant in sun or light shade in good garden soil. Enrich the soil with organic matter. Ideal in the front of a bed in a cottage garden or grown with other spring and autumn flowering plants such as pansies for a colorful display. An excellent plant in a container either by itself or with other plants.

Regular applications of Seasol and Power Feed will keep it looking its best.
