Bidens 'Spotlight'

Half-hardy Perennial

Here's another of T&M's breeding successes! With its two-tone daisy flowers, Bidens 'Spotlight' will shine out from your summer displays over an impressively long flowering period. Let the bushy stems cascade from hanging baskets and containers, or creep through gravel gardens and the front of borders. The nectar rich blooms of this cheery little patio plant will also attract plenty of beneficial pollinating insects. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 35cm (14").


Culinary note: The blossoms are commonly used in salads but also hold their flavour once cooked and can be added to a variety of dishes. For more details about edible flowers click here.

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.
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.
