    Superbena are our most vigorous, heat tolerant, and mildew tolerant series. While always great in containers they are also fantastic in landscape beds. They can tolerate dry soils and lower fertility. Normally either an application of slow release fertilizer or amending with compost is enough to keep them happy and blooming in landscape beds. They shouldnt need to be trimmed back but can be given a haircut a trim back using a sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears at any time. While naturally well branched, trimming them back will encourage additional branching, fuller plants, and ultimately more flowers. I usually give them a very slight trim as I am transplanting to boost branching.

    An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.

    The Superbena series are vigorous spreaders with strong garden performance. The abundance of flowering helps Superbena really stand out in the garden.

    • I bought this at Lowe's and put it in a container with an anemone for mother's day in May. The peach color with the blueish anemone looked beautiful. I visited in October and the peachy keen was still blooming and filled out the pot nicely even after the anemone faded. Fantastic!

    • Great performer in the ground and in containers. They spread amazingly in the ground and filled in beautifully in my containers. These plants bloom like crazy! I have occasionally deadheaded them but a few of them that have been neglected in the ground seem to be performing just as well without deadheading. I will definitely be using them again.
