Description
A new generation of bidens which offers bushy plants with an unrivalled flower power. With every day that passes, more and more blooms keep appearing, covering over the faded blooms and keeping the plant super tidy! Never seen before colours too! These are the result of a long-term breeding program we started back in 2005 by crossing new species with the classical yellow bidens, to bring the pink and white colours to the Genus, which were missing up to that point. It took nearly 10 years to refine the intensity of the colours, flower shapes and habit to the near perfection we see today. Every year only the very best plants within 6,000 to 10,000 were chosen to carry on and further assessed in our trials. The controlled habit and extra bright colours and bicolours make them ideal and versatile on their own, mixed together or in combination with most plants without taking over the container or hanging basket.

How to Grow
Pot up bidens plugs and grow them on in frost free conditions for transplanting at a later date. Pinch out the growing points while the plants are still small to encourage more stems. Regular pinching will create a shapely compact plant that is perfect for containers. When plants are well grown acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days prior to planting them in their final positions. Grow Bidens plants in containers, hanging baskets and borders in any well drained soil in full sun.
More Info
Feed and water bidens plants regularly. Cut back faded flower stems to encourage more flowers to be produced. Although bidens is generally grown as an annual, if containers are moved to a bright frost free position over winter, they be kept for the following year.
