Product Description

A new colour for bidens which is a big step forward from the more usual yellow, this spectacular colour combination provides you with a totally unique and truly wonderful contrast that will really brighten any summer display.

Bred to be compact and vigorous (while still remaining tidy), these delightful plants will become smothered with bloom throughout summer with new flowers opening every day, and they'll constantly attract butterflies and other friendly pollinating insects. Perfect for pots and hanging baskets, where they will spill over the sides, softening hard edges - you'll be dazzled by the abundant display of bicolour daisy-like pink and white flowers of this stunning new bidens.

With its lush fern-like leaves, 'Firelight' makes a perfect contrast to more pastel-coloured plants and is absolutely superb grown alongside blue or purple petunias.

Supplied as 12 plug plants, ready for potting up and growing on. Mature plants will reach 20cm x 20cm.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Best grown in baskets or taller containers, 'Firelight' loves the heat so be sure to grow in a sunny spot.
  • Plant into our Easy Fill baskets for the very best hanging basket displays or take a look at our range of contemporary planters.

Care Guide

  • Unpack plugs immediately and stand them in water for an hour.
  • If you can’t do this, they can sit in their mini greenhouse for a week if upright and not too wet.
  • Plugs may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but they’ll quickly recover.
  • Put them somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • When potting on, handle plugs carefully. Pot on using our 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays, using good multi-purpose compost.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry. They don’t like to be left in standing water.
  • When established, plant approx. 20cm (8in) apart to allow them room to grow - remember to protect tender plants from late frosts.
  • Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.
  • Dead head when flowers fade to encourage more flowers.
