Cupflower (Nierembergia Hippomanica) 150 seeds (#1480)

Above a tidy mound of fine green foliage, scores of cup-shaped, light blue-violet flowers from early summer to frost. Descended from a tender perennial native to Chile, it is widely cultivated as a long-blooming annual for garden uses that maximize its pretty flower display.
This bright green plant is very bushy, fine-stemmed and densely-branched. The stiff leaves are short and narrow, almost needle-like. Depending on climate, from late spring onwards until a frost, many cup-shaped, five-petalled flowers cover the plant. They are pale blue-violet and fade at their edges to lavender. Butterflies and bees pollinate them.
Grow in a moist, well-drained, rich, organic soil in full to partial sun. In winter reduce watering. Not overly tolerant of summer heat, it may stop flowering and resume toward early fall; it is best in regions with cool but comfortable summers.
After blooming, plants should be lightly trimmed to encourage new growth and bloom.
Use it in frost-free locations as an evergreen, mounded accent in the mixed border or moist rock garden, as a bedding plant, or in containers and hanging baskets. In hot summer regions grow it from fall to spring. In cold temperate areas, grow it as an herbaceous annual to brighten beds among spring bulbs, as edging, or in summer containers.
