The new Aussie Winners selections in the popular Superbena series are strong, compact plants bearing masses of flower and are ideally suited to the smaller gardens of today. As decorator planted in larger garden pots and hanging baskets the Bushy's show off their beauty and versatility for all to see.
Superbena Bushy Crimson, Bushy Merlot and Bushy White are useful in many ways in the garden. As they are more compact and bushy they bear more flower heads than the traditional Superbena range which makes them more showy and easy to care for in decorator pots, hanging baskets and the smaller garden areas of today. The flower heads follow each other so the plant is constantly in bloom if well looked after.
It is important to look after your Bushy's with the following points being crucial to keep the plant growing vigorously.
Remove some of the spent flowers from time to time.
As the plant gets older it begins to look tired. Prune back severely to get new growth.
Fertilise at this time with a fertilizer high in potash, like Yates Flower & Fruit to recommended rates.
In pots or baskets you will need to keep evenly moist at all times.
These superb plants were bred and selected in Japan particularly for the patio and courtyard garden so popular in today’s lifestyle. The parents were hybrid verbenas from the vast selection of these plants that have been bred and released to gardeners over many years.
