Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Snowstorm bacopa is a new annual that is taking country by storm. An Old World native, it was discovered filling out lush hanging baskets in an Australian nursery and brought to America as a Proven Winners introduction.

Propagated by cuttings, and not by seed, it is a welcome newcomer for window boxes, planters, pots, and a garden ground cover.

Use alone or in combination with other annuals in pots, baskets, and other containers. Or let the stems creep around the base of taller annuals or perennials or along a retaining wall or front edging of a garden

Bacopa grows well from or shade,but requires abundant water in sunny areas. Provide well-drained but rich soil in a garden or planter. When grown in a basket or container,fertilize regularly with a high nitrogen fertilizer.
