  • The perfect patio bidens
  • Never-before-seen colours and bicolours
  • Result of 10 years of plant breeding work
  • Bred to be vigorous, but controlled

Here’s a whole new generation of bidens offering bushy plants with unrivalled flower power. More blooms appear each day, covering over faded flowers and keeping the plant looking neat and tidy. The never-before-seen colours are the result of a long breeding program we started back in 2005 by crossing new species with the classical yellow bidens to bring out the pink and white colours, which were missing up to that point. We managed to introduce the new colours, but it’s taken nearly 10 years of work by our plant breeding team to refine the intensity of the colours, flower shapes and habit to the near perfection we see today. The colours are so unique that people seeing them for the first time do not always realise they are bidens!

The controlled habit and extra bright colours and bicolours make this Bidens Collection super versatile; plant ‘Firelight’, ‘Moonlight’ and ‘Spotlight’ on their own as a collection or in combination with other plants. They’ll look fabulous wherever you plant them and they won’t end up taking over your containers or hanging baskets. Height: 20cm (8in) Spread: 30cm (12in).

  • Collection comprises:
  • Bidens ‘Firelight’ - Stunning dark pink and white bicoloured blooms with a bright yellow central eye.
  • Bidens ‘Moonlight’ - Bright white bidens flowers with a contrasting yellow centre.
  • Bidens ‘Spotlight’ - Enjoy not one, but two shades of sunny yellow on the petals of this fabulous bidens variety.

Culinary information: 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.
