Nemesia Plants for Sale

The Best Nemesia Varieties

Nemesias are sun loving, bushy little plants whose colourful, scented flowers are on display for five or six months of the year. Historically, these mostly tender perennials have often been treated as annuals in the border, but with hardier varieties being introduced and the increased practice of covering plants with fleece in mid-winter, that is changing!


Grown in containers, they can be moved into shelter and be ready to flower early the following season. Treat them like alpine flowers while in bloom: they love a good watering in the growing season, but they also demand sharp drainage: standing in water will give them root rot.

The genus name Nemesia, which also belongs to a trapdoor spider, may or may not have been bestowed by the Greek goddess Nemesis, she who delivers the harvest of consequences earned by the "frivolous insolences of mortals".  Even if so, your Narcissus has nothing to fear from Nemesis: she is the reason you know his name in the first place! 
Plants in the Silene genus, known as catchflies, are called nemesion in Greek: the root of both words is to do with distribution or allotment, not revenge.
Nemesia denticulata originates from South Africa, where they are known as toothed aloha, and are part of the Scrophulariaceae family of figwort, related to snapdragons and foxgloves.
