PLACEMENT & CULTIVATION
Classic spring bloomers now have a supporting player that just might steal the show. 'Sibella Carmine' is awash in vivid pink flowers that cascade over containers and carpet beds with a tumbling profusion of petite flowers. No deadheading is needed; they flower over a long season where summer nights cool down, spring to summer elsewhere. A lovely companion to the Violas, pansies, and primroses of spring in containers and cottage gardens.
About 1" per week, more during especially dry spells. Do not overwater or allow to get soggy.
Mix in a couple of inches of compost or well-rotted manure prior to planting. Additional applications of liquid or granular fertilizer (preferably organic) can also be applied according to package instructions.
Diseases & Pests:
No major pests or diseases.
