Temperatures Butterfly flowerSole pieno
Plant which needs at least a few hours a day of sunlight. These plants have an annual development, therefore when it becomes cold they deteriorate, and get completely eradicated.These plants don't like cold temperatures, therefore in the spring it is best to place them outside only when temperatures are above 15°C.

Care Butterfly flower
These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Butterfly flower is medium in size and 1,2 m in height; in the spring, summer, autumn, winter it assumes a purple colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. The Butterfly flower have a one or two year development cycle.

Feed Butterfly flower
Annual plants have a quite vigorous development and need, during the spring, a continuous fertilization; when placing them let’s add some humus or mature manure or some slow release granular fertilizer to the ground. During the spring months we suggest mixing some fertilizer for flowering plants to the irrigating water every 20-30 days.

Irrigation Butterfly flowerTenere asciutto
Watering takes place only when the soil has been dry for days, usually every 1-2 weeks can be enough; if the climate is particularly hot we can slightly intensify the irrigations, using 2-3 glasses of water . As the cold weather arrives, in autumn, usually waterings is interrupted because these plants can't bear harsh temperatures.

Adversity Butterfly flower
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.

Substrate Butterfly flower
We advise locating these annual plants in a dissolved soil, with an elevated drainage.
