Scaevola (Scaevola spp.)
Scaevola Plant FeaturesThe flower-encrusted, cascading branches of scaevola make it an ideal choice for window boxes, hanging baskets, or tall containers where it's trailing form can flow over the container's edge. Scaevola, occasionally called fan flower, is a sun-loving annual that grows 8 to 12 inches tall and produces a non stop show of blue, pink, or white flowers. Because scaevola is an Australian native the plants are heat tolerant and have almost no insect or disease problems. Scaevola is also self cleaning so you don't have to remove the dead flowers to keep the plant in production. The plants attract butterflies and are generally avoided by deer. In very warm parts of the country it can be treated as a tender perennial. Hardy from zones 10-11

Scaevola Growing InstructionsPlace scaevola in a location that receives at least 6 to 8 hours of sunlight a day. Use a commercial potting mix if you are growing scaevola in containers. Water the plants when the surface of the soil begins to dry. Scaevola does not like super wet soil, but they also hate drying out and will wilt dramatically if thirsty.
Scaevola is not recommended for human or animal consumption.
