Diascia are best planted in a moist, well-drained soil of sand, chalk and loam within an alkaline, neutral or acidic PH balance. They are best planted in full sun and removed from the garden before temperatures get too cold, although they may survive a mild winter if positioned in a sheltered spot. They grow particularly well in containers but look equally good in borders.

Dig a hole that is as deep and as wide as the root ball and space companion plants at an appropriate distance to support the mature size of your plants. Back fill the planting areas and water thoroughly to settle the plant in place.
Cut back in late April and again in late August if they are getting too straggly. Pinch the tops out to make the plant bushier, stronger and to produce more flowers. Water frequently to keep the soil moist, especially during periods of drought. Deadhead spent flowers to prolong the flowering season.
It is possible to propagate Diascia by cuttings which should be taken between May and September.
