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
Snowstorm® Snow Globe® Bacopa Sutera hybrid
- Hardy Zones
- 9 - 11
- Part Sun to Sun
- Mature Size
- 4 - 8 Inches
Large flowers create a snowstorm of color all summer long.
Great as a component plant in combination containers and a wonderful landscape plant.
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.

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.Matthew LambFrederickMarylandUnited States1 year ago
