Yellow juggler flower: location and care


The yellow juggler flower, which is actually native to Chile, has long since triumphed in our gardens. Here everything about the location and care of the flower.

The yellow juggler flower comes from Chile

The shining perennial plant is not only suitable for conventional bed planting, you can also keep it as a container plant and use it easily on the garden pond bank. You can even use some varieties in shallow water zones of your garden pond (water depth of up to 10 centimeters is important here). From time to time a blue juggler flower is offered in gardening stores, which forms a great contrast to the yellow-colored variety, as well as hybrid varieties in red, orange, white and multi-colored flowering varieties.

But first everything important about the location and the care of the yellow juggler flower.

Site selection

Yellow juggler flowers prefer nutrient-rich, moist soil conditions in full sun to moderately light penumbra. They achieve a stature height of up to 40 centimeters and always reward their gardener with a lavish bloom.

Tip:

With juggler flowers, you can still produce a little waterlogging, especially if you keep the flowers in the bucket. Up to 10 centimeters of irrigation water depth do not harm this variety, especially in the hot summer months.

Caring for the yellow juggler flower properly

»Propagation:

The mostly annual juggler flower is certainly one of the easy-care garden shrubs and grows every year in autumn through self-sowing. It is important, however, that you do not cut off the stems at the end of the blossom so that the yellow juggler flower can reproduce itself.

»Winter protection / pruning:

At the same time, the independent rotting of the stems ensures better winter protection. If necessary, pruning is still possible in early spring.

»Fertilize:

Furthermore, you do not have to provide the juggler flower with fertilizer, insofar as it can draw enough nutrients from the soil. Otherwise, you can give minimally complete fertilizer if necessary.
