New Introduction 2004 - Nemesia Aromatica

Nemesia Aromatica


Add a touch of aromatherapy to your garden with these delicate, airy and super fragrant blooms.

The Nemesia Aromatica produces blooms all summer long. The new hybrids are more compact and better branched than previous varieties.

Easy and undemanding, they thrive in sun or semi-shade.

Growing 35cm high and with a profusion of open, snapdragon like flowers, they produce a quick show of summer bedding colour.

They also work well in containers and as a filler in window boxes and hanging baskets. Also good for massing in beds .

Keep well-watered at all times.

Pinch the tips of plants to keep them bushy and flower filled.

Trim back by one third after flowering to encourage repeat blooms.


They are an excellent choice for early spring planting in containers or beds.

When the temperatures start to heat up the plant tends to decline.

Fertilize monthly with a balanced fertilizer

Nemesias originate from South Africa.
