The Q&A Archives: Growing Godetia

Question: I would like information on a plant called Godetia. It stands about 3 ft. tall with bell shaped flowers. I have are purple, pink & white. It needs to be staked but I want to know if I should cut it back to encourage more flowers.

Answer: I know of Godetia, also known as Clarkia. I don't recommend cutting them back, just keep them staked, and don't overfeed them. They actually bloom best when they are a little crowded together. Their blooming slows during hot weather. Water them regularly. Hope this helps!
