Heliotrope Purple Marine are great landscape plants for those who live in areas with hot, dry summers. They are drought and heat tolerant while providing great-looking bushels of blooms. Their purple flowers are very fragrant and their mounding habit keeps plants neat and clean.

Growing Tips

For best results with Heliotrope, use a constant-but-low feed program of 200 ppm N. A pH between 5.5 and 6.5 is important for the healthiest plant color.


Heliotrope will bloom naturally in the spring as the days lengthen.


Heliotrope do not require pinching, but you can trim larger baskets to maintain their shape if you want. Allow 4-6 weeks after the last pinch for blooms to appear.


Space pots as needed for pot size. Normal 2' centered spacing is usually adequate.

Height Control

Plant growth regulators are not necessary for Heliotrope. Allow the plant to grow, and shape the pots through proper pinching.


Whiteflies and occasionally aphids are Heliotrope Purple Marine's biggest pests.


They are not prone to many diseases, but watch for botrytis while the days are short. This grey rot is usually associated with wet or humid conditions. You can prevent botrytis by allowing the plant to dry out between waterings, allowing for good airflow in your greenhouse, and spacing to allow the sun to penetrate to the soil level. The most common chemicals used to treat botrytis are Medallion and Banrot. Use them as a drench according to each label's instructions.

Planting Heliotrope Purple Marine Liners

  1. We recommend planting 5 starter plants per 10 inch basket. Use a well-drained soil in your baskets and plant your starter plants deep, allowing the ellepot to be completely covered by the soil. If you are planting 4" pots, 1 plant per pot should be sufficient. Plant it directly in the middle of your pot.
  2. Pinching is not required on a natural season bloom schedule, but it is useful in shaping the basket as needed. Remember to give yourself a minimum of 4 weeks from the last pinch for blooms to develop.

Rooted Cuttings

Cuttings vary in size between different plant families. These rooted starter plants will arrive ready to be transplanted in to your final container. If they are to be used in a landscape application, you will need to establish them in a 4 inch pot or an 1801 before planting outside.
