One of the most welcome additions to any sunny garden or patio, Golden Eye is a Bidens developed especially for baskets and window boxes! Nearly prostrate, it trails magnificently, tossing out honey-scented blooms every inch of the way!

These charming yellow-gold daisies are tiny and unbelievably profuse, arising on short stems just above ferny foliage of bright green. The honeybees and butterflies find them immediately, sip their nectar, and come back for seconds, thirds, and hundreds over the nearly endless midsummer-to-mid-fall bloom season.

Golden Eye reaches just a few inches high and spreads 10 to 12 inches wide. A fast grower, it loves heat, doesn't mind humidity, and can tolerate periods of drought, although the best flowering will always be when the plant is consistently watered. The foliage is handsome as well, with a finely cut, ferny look.

This Arizona-to-Mexico native plant is a half-hardy perennial, grown everywhere as an annual. The seed is easy to start: lightly cover it (or drop it into the bio sponges of the Bio Dome), keep the temperature at 55 to 65 degrees F, and expect germination within 3 weeks. It needs light to germinate, and high humidity is appreciated both during and after germination. Pinch the young seedlings at about 2 inches high, and transplant into the garden or container when the spring weather is nice and warm, well past the last anticipated frost date. Then get ready for 4 months or more of blooms! Pkt is 25 seeds.
