Nemesia strumosa 'KLM'

Cape Jewels

Half-hardy Annual

The top petals are rich blue in clear contrast to the lower petals' creamy whiteness. Lots of flowers, smaller than the large flowered strains, even in height 25cm (10in) and with universal appeal. Named after the Dutch airway KLM whose company colours are blue and white. An excellent companion to our red and white Nemesia Mello. Use it in beds, borders etc, to brighten up the garden or in tubs, planters, on the patio or even as a windowsill pot plant. Flowers summer. Height 25cm (10in.)

Ideal For:
patio, alpine & rockery, cut flower garden

June, July, August

Sow late winter to mid spring at 13-15C (55-60F) in a good seed compost, just covering the seed with compost. Keep soil damp but not wet. Germination usually takes 7-21 days. Keep the soil temperature below 19C (65F).

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3in) pots and grow in cooler conditions. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 15cm (6in) apart in a sunny spot.
