I was so pleased with my Snow Globe Bacopa this year! I planted two of them in a tall 14" pot with a dipladenia in the center, and the bacopa completely filled in all around the edges and cascaded down the sides of the pot. Just gorgeous. They apparently also have some cold tolerance, as we are into fall now and have had killing frosts twice and they still look beautiful, just covered with flowers. I will definitely be planting these again!

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.Snowstorm® Snow Globe® Sutera cordata 'WINSUSNOGB' USPPAF, Can PBRAF

Growing these in containers and loving them. They are trailing n just such a pretty bloom. I’m in zone 7b (northeastern NJ) they receive about 6 hours of morning/early afternoon sun. Will add these again next year.Lourdes, 18 weeks ago
