This super powered Bacopa has amazing heat tolerance, flowers for much of the year, is self cleaning and has the best density we have ever seen. Where many Bacopas have holes, these do not. They have the largest Bacopa flowers available in gorgeous, mauve pink shades.
MegaCopa Bacopa have wonderful trailing stems that are covered in flowers for many months. They look fantastic spilling from pots or hanging baskets. In the garden they are lovely atop a retaining wall, as a ground cover, or along paths and garden bed edges. MegaCopa Bacopa is the most heat tolerant variety available.
The leaves are mid to deep green and grow along the stems. They remain evergreen where the weather is warm year round. Here in Victoria they tend to go into a winter stasis but come back quickly as the weather warms. In pots or baskets they even hang on to flowers in cool climes
Plant MegaCopa Bacopa in full sun to part shade. Choose a moderately fertile to humus rich, moist, well drained soil. It is advisable to add a slow release fertiliser in spring and summer to keep them blooming at their best.
In pots use a good quality potting mix. Sutera were previously known botanically as Bacopa.
