The plants are self-cleaning, so no deadheading is necessary. Plants may be trimmed back with a sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears at anytime, although this is not usually necessary. Diascia from Penhow are very heat tolerant, but plants may flush out of flower if night temperatures begin to stay in the upper 70s or above. During excessive heat spells, lightly trim the plants back to shape, as this will increase branching and will result in more flowers once the temperatures fall and the plants begin flowering again.
An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.
