Customer Questions & Answers

Shade & Zone 9b - Orlando, FL

Sorry for more Questions. I live in Orlando Florida, Zone 9b (please correct me if I am wrong on my zone) Will the plants grow be affected (and HOW)... IF... 1. They are planted in an area of morning shade & full afternoon sun... 2. They are planted in Partial shade under an oak tree w/random Rays of Sun 3. Potted indoors under a strong Sky light (solo-tube) combined with a Grow Light Thank You Again. I believe that is all for now... Seeing these have just taken my breath away, ESPECIALLY since they are fragrant.
Asked by: Nance
Hello. Yes, these are a beautiful Dianthus variety. In Florida, the plants may be short lived due to the hotter spring and summer seasons, they grow and bloom best in cooler climates. The soil must retain moisture and it may be necessary to water the plants more frequently. It might be best to plant these in potted containers that can be moved around to find the best growing site in your yard. The foliage will dry and brown if in too hot an area, so Option 1 with full afternoon sun may not be ideal. Option 2 with random rays of sunlight might be cooler but the plant desires a sunny location. Option 3 for growing indoors might work but experimentation will probably be needed to find the best climate control for the plant, including 4-5 hrs of artificial sunlight, fertile well drained alkaline soil, good air circulation, and regular fertilizer applications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT!!! Came in perfect condition, healthy and already flowering after two weeks. Just what I wanted but thought it was a little pricey for the size.
