    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.

    • I planted two Snowstorm Blue bacopas in each of two 12" hanging pots in a sunny location. They did well. I watered every day in the hot weather. The plants don't get especially long; they are more of a bushy spreader than a trailer. The blossoms are a pretty purple. Flowering is not uniformly constant, but ebbs and flows. Overall they're nice, but next time I would put them in mixed planters instead of hanging pots.

    • Beautiful trailer. Shade necessary for hot midday sun. Don't let in become dry.
