The Nierembergia can be seen in both blue and white here in The Cummer Gardens. It makes it a habit to grow neatly and can be used in the front of beds or borders to give your garden a crisp look. The nierembergia is hardy yet tender coming from South America. Their leaves are linear and only up to an inch long while their flowers shape into shallow cups 1-2 inches across. Aside from the blue and white found in The Cummer’s Garden, they can also be found in violet and lilac. Known to bloom in the late Spring until early Fall, right now is the perfect time to catch the Nierembergia in The Gardens.
