Sutera (bacopa) – Blue

Description

Bench Card

This fast-growing, easy to care for plant is an attractive addition to hanging baskets and patio containers, but also makes an outstanding groundcover.  Sutera prefers part shade and needs enough water to keep it evenly moist, but not soggy.  Don’t allow the plant to dry out between waterings.  Sutera will attract butterflies, and the plant can be shaped by pinching it back to encourage fullness.  It is a self-cleaning plant that will continually bloom throughout the season if given sufficient amounts of water and fertilizer (all-purpose balanced plant food).
