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.

Caring for Rhoeo Spathacea Tricolor

  • During the warm months, let the topsoil dry out between waterings, but not the bottom soil.
