Flowering period Summer-early autumn
Height 18-24in/45-60mm
Light preference Full sun
Soil preference Any, but moist and free-draining
Sowing time/depth Spring, Shallow
A taller variety than the familiar hanging basket and container Bidens, this bright and cheery plant looks lovely planted en masse in the hot bed, alongside other orange and yellow-flowering plants such as Cosmos polidor and Tagetes tenuifolia. The foliage is very attractive too - finely divided leaves are a little fern-like. The plant has an open habit, the profusion of clear yellow blooms appearing on wiry stems, right through to the first frosts. May need gentle support, although this is often naturally provided by neighbouring plants of similar height. A useful flower for cutting.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow at 70F/21C in spring on the surface of modules or seed trays, barely covering with a little compost or vermiculite, potting on as the plants develop. Wait until frost no longer poses a threat before planting into open ground. Pinching out growing tips once the plants are about 6-9in tall encourages branching. Prefers a fertile, moist soil in full sun.
