The Sweetwilliam have a one or two year development cycle. These plants grow covering the whole land at their disposal. The Sweetwilliam is medium in size and 45 cm in height; in the spring, summer, autumn, winter it assumes a red colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.
The Sweetwilliam should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight. The Sweetwilliam should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.These plants lose the aerial part during the coldest months of the year. As spring begins, stems and leaves quickly start to reproduce.
Water rarely, about once every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down. Perennial plants are subject to some months of vegetational rest. During these months it isn't necessary to water them.
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.
We suggest a substratum characterized by an excellent drainage.
The Sweetwilliam also has a pleasing fragrance. The indications given in this article are related to a medium size plant.
