Nemesia (Nemesia Strumosa Orange Prince) - What bold, brilliant color from such a little plant! Start Nemesia seeds for an annual treasure of color and a long bloom season. Orange Nemesia flower clusters form at the top of erect branches. Nemesia Strumosa has a wide color range, but this variety is a striking orange. Nemesia plants like fertile, well-drained soil and prefers full sun, although they will tolerate partial shade. Orange Nemesia plants are wonderful in containers and baskets or edging the front of the border. They are not terribly heated tolerant, so in hotter regions, some afternoon shade would be preferable.

How to grow Nemesia from flower seed: Sow Nemesia seeds indoors 4 - 6 weeks before the last frost. Sow flower seed on the surface of starter compost and gently firm down compost, only lightly cover. Keep the soil damp but not wet. Do not exclude light. When the Nemesia seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 3-inch pots and grow in cooler conditions. Gradually acclimatize the young Nemesia seedlings to outdoor conditions. As seedlings grow, pinch back 1 - 2 times to encourage compact growth. Transplant outdoors after all risk of frost has passed, 6 inches (16cm) apart. Or directly sow Nemesia seeds outdoors in prepared beds when the danger of frost has passed. Thin to 6 inches (16cm) apart
