  • Unique yellow colouring
  • Versatile patio bidens
  • Tidy and controlled habit
Enjoy not one, but two shades of sunny yellow on the petals of this fabulous bidens variety. It's taken nearly 10 years of work by our plant breeding team to refine the colour, flower shape and habit to the near perfection we see today in these fabulous patio bidens. The colours are so unique that people seeing them for the first time do not always realise they are bidens!

Bidens 'Spotlight' is one of a whole new generation of bidens which are set to become true garden favourites. Plants are bushy and neat with a controlled habit meaning that they won't take over your containers or baskets and you won't believe their flower power! Fresh flowers appear on the plants each day, neatly covering the older blooms and keeping the plants looking tidy. This new patio bidens is really versatile and makes an excellent combination plant as the cheery yellow bicolour of its flowers looks fantastic in any planting scheme.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.

Flowering Months
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.
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.
