Scaevola 'Mauve Clusters' (Fairy Fan Flower) - A groundcover that forms a dense mat that spreads 3-5 feet with its fleshy leaves. The lightly fragrant lavender-blue flowers are a fan shape and bloom almost year-round. Best in sun or light shade with moderate watering. Sensitive to temperatures much below 23 F but root hardy lower. In the Decemeber 1990 cold snap large patches of this plant created a brown swath in many commercial landscapes but those not replanted sprouted back and looked great by summer. This is condsidered to be a Scaevola albida selection or hybrid and was the first Scaevola cultivars introduced in the US - we have been growing this plant since 1985. It has smaller flowers than newer cultivars but is a lower growing plant that has remained reliably long lived in the landscape.  The information provided on this page is based on the research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations of our nursery crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We also will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Scaevola albida 'Mauve Clusters'.
