- Growing Tips:
Deadheading not necessary for continuous bloom but can be used to tidy plants.
Totally Tempted is a sun lover and actually performs better when not crowded in containers, but has a little room to breath. Though it is a fragile looking plant it is actually quite tough and don’t be afraid to put it to the test and put Totally Tempted out in the hot sun, water regularly to get the plant established, then let the watering taper off so they plants can really shine!
An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.
