These little flowers are prolific and cheery and delightful. I bought these in late summer, after my large maple cleared its leaves, allowing me to add more sun-tolerant annuals underneath. I had these pouring out of a planter with late season grasses and they made my day every time I saw them. And the honeybee population just couldn't get enough!

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.Snowstorm® Glacier Blue™ Sutera cordata 'WINSUSNOGL' USPP 32,698
