Snowstorm® Giant Snowflake® Bacopa Sutera cordata 'Giant Snowflake®'
Height: 4-8" Spread: up to 36"
Flower Color: White Habit: Trailing
Bloom time: Planting To Frost Water: Average
Design: Landscape/Container Exposure: Part/full Sun
Unlike most plants, Sutera will not wilt when drought stressed. Before the plant shows signs of wilting it will drop both the flowers and the buds on the plant. It takes about 2 weeks for the plant to come back into bloom after it has been drought stressed. To maintain constant bloom you will either need to monitor the plant closely and water before the soil gets too dry or you could plant Sutera with a plant that does wilt. Some good plants to consider are verbena, coleus, petunias etc. These companion plants will serve as indicator plants to let you know that the Sutera is dry and should help you avoid having the plant dropping blooms and buds due to drought stress. An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.
Calibrachoa Calibrachoa
Height: 6-10" Spread: 8-10"
Flower Color: (various) Habit: Cascading
Bloom time: Planting To Frost Water: Average
Design: Container Exposure: Full Sun
Calibrachoa are usually easiest to grow in containers because if the roots are kept too wet can lead to root rot diseases. In containers, allow the top of the soil to dry before watering again. If your plant is wilting even though the soil is still damp you likely have a root rot problem. Calibrachoa can be fantastic in-ground plants, but only if they are planted in well drained soil. Raised beds would be a good choice for planting Calibrachoa in the landscape. In the ground they shouldn’t need much additional water unless conditions are very dry. Proper watering is key to growing good Calibrachoa.

Delta blooms early in low light environments, and shows up to three times the number of blooms as other varieties. Delta overwinters well, and stays attractive during severe weather due to short, sturdy stems. The Delta series reaches new heights in uniformity with Delta Premium colors. Delta Premiums are more manageable and hold better than the colors they replace. Both early flowering and free-flowering characteristics remain the same in the Delta Premiums. Plants also show continuous flowering under low light.

They are heat-loving plants, best sown at the same time that peppers are transplanted outside.
