BRED BY DÜMMEN ORANGE
How long has it been on the market?
Several series within the I’Conia brand launched in 2015. Multiple new introductions will be announced for the 2019 retail season.
Part sun to full shade
In cooler climates with milder summers, I’Conia can thrive in full sun conditions when kept well-watered. In harsher climates, I’Conia should receive partial afternoon shade to prevent leaf and petal scorching.
