Scaevola aemula 'Bombay Dark Blue'

Scaevola


Scaevola Grower Tips:

Bombay Scaevola likes high light and warm temperatures. Too low of temperatures, especially early on, can lead to root rot and dark purple foliage. Plants can be pinched twice for baskets and large containers. Florel in finished production can significantly delay flowering. Late B-Nine sprays will reduce flower size.

Strong trailing habits are the ideal choice for summer baskets and combos.
Dark blues and bright whites thrive even when temperatures are at their hottest.
The ultimate summer mixer and a foundation of many best-selling Heat Lover Kwik Kombos.
