Nemesias are generally cultivated as annual plants, sowing them in greenhouses or under glass in February-March, with subsequent transplantation after a few weeks in the boxes or in the flowerbeds. Wanting to sow directly at home the best time according to the seasonal trend, is the month of April, then thinning out the seedlings in order to space them between them by about thirty centimeters. The nemesias bloom in the months of May / June. The flowering period is long lasting and lasts until the autumn. The nemesia is not very widespread in Italy but abroad it is very appreciated for coloring gardens and terraces. To obtain a second flowering, at the end of the first it is important to make a good topping and provide to irrigate it with water and soluble chemical fertilizers. The best exposure is the slightly sunny one in a well-ventilated area, with a fertile, sandy soil, (river sand is preferable) and well-drained. In the latter case, it is advisable to chop the peat into the soil to obtain a slow release of the liquid so as to keep the soil constantly humidified, especially in the summer periods where the risk of drought lies. A characteristic of the nemesia above all in the species called "nemesia strumosa" is that of having the lower leaves of elongated shape in the form of a spatula, while the upper ones are lanceolate with toothed margins. The flowers on each stem can be yellow, red, orange and pink at the same time. This plant is very suitable for the production of hybrids with the crossing of the type called "nemesia versicolor". Finally a species of nemesia called "floribunda" native to South Africa is about thirty centimeters high with oval leaves and the flowers compared to the other species described, are smaller but numerous, white inside and striated or spotted with purple on the outside. The nemesia of its kind is perhaps one of the only flowering plants that manages to develop, year after year, a variety of colors that are always different.
