PLACEMENT & CULTIVATION
Browallia 'Blue Lady' is a profuse bloomer, delightful in drifts at the front of the border. Easy to grow, for best growth and flowering, provide full sun in cooler climates, while in warmer climates, it prefers some afternoon shade. Pinching the plant when setting out will encourage bushy growth, resulting in more abundant blooming. If overwintering in pots indoors, bring them in before nighttime temperatures dip below 40°F, placing them near a sunny, south-facing window, where they will continue to bloom with proper care and attention. Self-sows.
Not particular about soil pH.
Mix a few inches of compost into the soil prior to planting.
Diseases & Pests:
If aphids appear, hose plants down daily until the pests are not longer present. An insecticidal soap can also be used.
