  • Family: Asteraceae
  • Plant Type: Perennial

Bidens ferulifolia is a dazzling Mexican plant. If grown as a perennial it will develop into quite a large herbaceous plant, but it’s usually bought as one ingredient of a hanging basket scheme, and discarded after flowering. The species is an upright plant, suitable for growing in beds and containers, while the vigorous variety ‘Golden Goddess’ is the best one for baskets, its long branches trailing and forming an open bulky bush. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

Grow Bidens ferulifolia in moist but well-drained soil in full sun.


Pruning and caring for Bidens

Care is easy and you’ll only have to water in summer whenever dry spells and high temperatures extend for a lengthy amount of time.

Remove wilted flowers regularly often, this is called deadheading. This step helps stimulate the plant to produce new flowers.

  • Winter is a time when you must protect your plant if you expect temperatures lower than 23°F (-5°C).


Bidens Blazing Glory Rooted Cutting Liner

Bidens (tickseed sunflower plants) are sun-loving annuals with fern-leafed foliage and bright yellow flowers. These plants bloom continuously and are self-cleaning. They are suitable for landscapes and mixed containers, and since they like moist soil, they can create a cover for bare, open areas such as ditches. One thing your customer may love about Bidens is that they self-sow. Bidens also attract pollinators and butterflies, blooming from July to October.

General Growing Tips For Your Rooted Cutting Liner

For best results with Bidens, we recommend using a constant feed program of 150-200 ppm N. Maintain a pH between 5.8 - 6.2.

Pinching

For Blazing Glory we recommend one pinch 5-10 days after transplant, once the roots are established.

Spacing

Bidens should be spaced adequately to allow airflow and light penetration between the foliage. Usually 2' centers on baskets will be enough.

Height Control

Plant growth regulators are optional with Bidens, though not necessary under high light intensities. 1-3 sprays of ALAR (B-Nine) 2 gr/L according to required plant size.

Pests

Whiteflies, aphids, and thrips are common pest problems with Bidens.

Disease

Blazing Glory are not prone to many diseases, but watch for botrytis while the days are short. This grey rot is usually associated with wet or humid conditions. You can prevent botrytis by allowing the plant to dry out between waterings, allowing for good airflow in your greenhouse, and spacing to allow the sun to penetrate to the soil level. The most common chemicals used to treat botrytis are Medallion and Banrot. Use them as a drench according to each label’s instructions.

Planting Blazing Glory Liners

  1. We recommend planting 4-5 starter plants per 10 inch basket. Use a well-drained soil in your baskets and plant your starter plants deep, allowing the ellepot to be completely covered by the soil. If you are planting 4" pots, 1 plant per pot should be sufficient. Plant it directly in the middle of your pot.
  2. Pinch Blazing Glory 5-10 days after transplanting to your final container.
