Bacopa / Sutera

bacscopiagulliverbluesensation (300x300)Sutera cordata ‘Scopia Gulliver Blue Sensation’ – This tender annual covers itself with five-petaled sky blue flowers (accented with a bright yellow eye) from mid spring right through to autumn. These are borne over rounded grey-green leaves with serrated edges, with the foliage eventually cascading. Prefers a part to full sun exposure. Grows 6″ high by 24″ wide. Z10.

bacjbpartyred (300x291)Sutera cordata ‘James Britannia Party Red’ (syn. ‘JB Party Red’) – A big step forward for the bedding plant known for its white flowers, ‘JB Party Red’ features beautiful brick red flowers (with subtle darker veining) and a large yellow eye that really stands out at a distance. These are carried over trailing mid green foliage. Grows 6″ high by 18″ wide. Hardy to zone 10.

bacredfoxbahiawhitenight (300x297)Sutera cordata ‘Bahia White Night’ – When Bacopa first came out a number of years ago it was the abundant white blooms that attracted all the attention. ‘Bahia White Night’ continues that tradition with starry snow-white flowers (with a subtle yellow eye) borne over hairy mid green foliage that eventually forms a dense mound. Grows 10″ high by 18″ wide. Hardy to zone 10.

bacjbpartypurple (300x296)Sutera cordata ‘James Britannia Party Purple’ (syn. ‘JB Party Purple’) – This cultivar of Bacopa is more heat resistant than most and features true purple flowers (with darker veining and eye zone) and a prominent bright yellow eye. The blooms are carried from late spring through to early fall over bright green, fern-like foliage. Grows 6″ high by 18″ wide. Hardy to zone 10.

bacsecretsxxlcentralpink (300x298)Sutera cordata ‘SECRETS XXL Central Pink’ – Yet another new addition to the colour range of Bacopa with very large (hence the XXL) single blooms of pale pink with a rosy-pink eye zone and subtle yellow center. These are borne from June to September over cascading foliage of rounded green leaves. A must-have in hanging baskets. Grows 10″ high by 18-24″ wide. Zone 10.
