Beedance bidens series
By Dave Harrison
March 2016 — Warm up combinations with sunny Beedance bidens from Suntory Flowers. ‘Painted Red’s’ petals are half red-orange and half yellow, becoming redder in cooler temperatures…
‘Painted Red’ (pictured) won the Innovation Award at IPM Essen in Germany for best new bedding and balcony plant, and best new annual at the HTA National Plant Show in the United Kingdom.
‘Red Stripe’ has yellow flowers with unique red stripes on each petal. Benefits include early flowering, continuous flowering and manageable plant habit. Beedance has shorter internodes but flowers still mingle nicely in combinations.
Plants are seed sterile but still produce pollen. Cutting sales will support honeybee health research through the Pollinator Partnership. suntorycollection.com
