Maintenance Notes: 

Self-cleaning, no deadheading necessary.

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.

  • I get at 3 of these each year and dump them in large pots with just about anything.
    These plants trail wonderfully and grow a multitude of branches, each of a different length.
    The flowers are larger and for most of the summer, blooms prolifically.
    For some reason, it seems to need a recharge in mid summer. The plant is still strong but the blooms almost stop.
    Then it comes back in later summer and goes strong through early fall.
    Definitely not a "self-cleaning" plant and most deadheads on my plants need much help to remove.
    Does need a bit more water than most other plants I have and they seem to be adversely impacted by long stretches of 90+ degree sunny days.

    I admit to buying bacopa under other brand names and while one or two have even larger flowers, none perform better than the PW plants.

    Bacopa is an absolute staple in any pot and I highly recommend.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.

  • Looks beautiful spilling out of my baskets and containers. I don't know if it is the heat here or the bit of shade in the late afternoon but I find it stops blooming half way through the summer

  • Plant is tough, vigorous and needs little maintenance. I discovered the more sun it gets, the more prolific the flowering but too much hot afternoon sun will brown some of the plants longest branches. I always like these for fillers/spillers and highly recommend.
