I planted along with marigolds and salvia in an oak wine barrel and it is growing beautifully. My only suggestion is that it SED to prefer part rather than full sun

Unlike most plants, Sutera will not wilt when drought stressed. Before the plant shows signs of wilting it will drop both the flowers and the buds on the plant. It takes about 2 weeks for the plant to come back into bloom after it has been drought stressed. To maintain constant bloom you will either need to monitor the plant closely and water before the soil gets too dry or you could plant Sutera with a plant that does wilt. Some good plants to consider are verbena, coleus, petunias etc. These companion plants will serve as indicator plants to let you know that the Sutera is dry and should help you avoid having the plant dropping blooms and buds due to drought stress.
An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.
In summer when you're outside and get caught in a blizzard, you don't need to call The Weather Channel. It's only me. All those fluffy white things? They're flowers. And they're growing on long, long slender branches. Look closely and you can probably see the green leaves. Really. It's not a snowstorm. It's a Snowstorm®. Those aren't giant snow flakes; they're Giant Snowflake® flowers.
I'm just your typical vigorous Proven Winners plant that's an annual except in zones 9-11. I grow best in full sun to part shade, and hanging baskets, combination containers and window boxes are my specialties. Not frozen ice, nice white flowers.

I absolutely love this plant in my pots but this is the second year they've dried up and died. Any suggestions?Lisa, Nebraska, United States, 8 years ago
Beautiful, thick, vine like flowersLinda Johnson, 8 years ago
planters on the deck looked lovely with these falling over the sides, but next year i will place it higher as it trails quite long stems, at least 18 inches.would be perfect in hanging situation. It flowered wonderfully well but late in the season as i had it in quite a shady spot..My mother , 94, loves it, and has commented several times how pretty it is- her favourite of all the deck plants. No visible bug damage, grew well in sea soil, definitely a reliable container plant.LOIS GARDNER, 8 years ago
Very disappointed with this plant. It bloomed for several weeks in June and stopped blooming during the month of July. It gets several hours of sun in the morning and shade in the late afternoon. Won't grow again.Ellie, 9 years ago
Very nice. Much larger flowers than previous bacopas I've grown. Just keeps going. Grew this year in huge pots with deep red pelargoniums, chartreuse-leaved licorice plant, chartreuse-and-white coleus, and tall white snapdragons - perfect!Nancy McDonald, Michigan, United States, 9 years ago
We use this plant every year in our mailbox area near the street. Not near easy water, they sometimes get badly stressed by traffic and lack of regular water. No matter how bad, they always come right back when we start regular care again.Judy Porter, Massachusetts, United States, 9 years ago
Outstanding performer all season long. Can withstand light frost.Nancy, Minnesota, United States, 9 years ago
Bacopa Giant Snowflake is incredibly beautiful in my garden. Amazingly fast growing and continually flowering, it covers ground, mounds, and trails over rocks, looking perfectly at home. Magnificent! I am going to plant some more.Marilyn DeSpain Long, California, United States, 9 years ago
Blooms best in spring and fall, has a tendency to stop blooming in intense heat. When in bloom makes up for the mid summer lull!Claire, British Columbia, Canada, 9 years ago
