Planting and care

In most areas, Rhoeo is considered an annual, though in fact, it is a tender perennial. Rhoeo is hardy only in USDA plant hardiness zones 9-11. This means that it can only tolerate temperatures down to about 20 F. (-6 C.) before they are killed off. Keep in mind that this is the temperature that will kill them.

Sun to Part ShadeWell-drained soilNew plantings should be watered daily for a couple of weeks. After that, depending on the weather and soil type, watering can be adjusted to every two or three days.40 to 50F (4 to 10C)Apply any organic fertilizer


  • Water the tricolor rhoeo once per week.
  • Water slowly and deeply down through the roots.
  • In the plant s first growth season, it s especially important to maintain a consistent watering schedule to ensure a strong, healthy root system.
  • During the warm months, let the topsoil dry out between waterings, but not the bottom soil.
