Nemesia ‘Blueberry Ripple’ is a big seller overseas providing a prolific display of deep lilac blue flowers from early spring. The sheer mass of the flowers is quite breath-taking and the flowers are distinctively bigger than older varieties. Nemesias in the ‘Berry Delight’ collection are also fragrant. Flowering is at its peak from late winter to early spring heralding the awakening of the winter garden.
Nemesias prefer a well-drained, rich organic soil. Ensure the plants do not dry out completely over the hot summer months. Avoid exposure to hot summer afternoon sun. Prune by half and apply a slow release fertiliser after flowering to maintain good vigour and performance.
