Description / 'Masquerade' Nemesia Flower Seeds

Just in time for Mardi Gras come these amazing blooms, which look for all the world like little masked faces. Of all the hundreds of plants I grew last year, 'Masquerade' was my hands-down favorite. Not only has there never been a Nemesia like it, but I don't think it has any rival in the entire horticultural world.

Each of the blooms sports a bold lavender-blue "mask" on golden petals—nothing like the sloppy faces on pansies, but an actual pointed, perfectly uniform little mask, so that from a distance the plant looks like a sea of mouse faces.

And as if the fascinating color pattern weren't enough, these blooms are wonderfully fragrant, with a coconut-like scent you'll love.

'Masquerade' doesn't pull a Cinderella when it comes to bloomtime, either—you can expect the flowers to keep coming from mid-spring into summer, popping up all over well-branched little plants. Perfect for the annual bed as well as containers of all types, this Nemesia asks only full sunshine and any moist, well-drained soil to keep blooming for weeks and weeks on end.

Sow these seeds in darkness, either indoors 4 to 6 weeks before last anticipated frost, or directly where you want them to grow outdoors. (If sowing outdoors, cover them well.) Germination takes a week or two. As the young plants grow, pinch them back to encourage bushiness and better branching. Stunning!

Review by Meagan
From seed to flower these plants are super easy to grow and care for. Low to no maintenance. My transplants were placed in relatively shallow and poor soil, and yet they are thriving! These flowers are full of personality and demand closer inspection from passersby. Love them.

I got the first flowers in early April! The first plant to flower in my basement window.
