Snow Princess is cold tolerant and heat-tolerant. She is very vigorous so pair her with other vigorous plants.

Blushing Princess is a "heavy drinker" and will prefer evenly moist soil. It will be quick to show drought stress but should bounce back quickly once re-hydrated. In a hanging basket, you should be prepared to water often, maybe more than once a day during warm weather. Plants are easier to keep moist when planted in large planters. Due to her water needs, Blushing Princess is ideal for use in larger planters. In containers, an application of continuous release fertilizer at planting is best. To help maximize performance use applications of a well-balanced water-soluble fertilizer (according to package directions) starting in mid-summer.

Blushing Princess will also perform well in the landscape where she will function as an annual, full sun, groundcover.
