A relative of the coreopsis, bidens are native to warm and temperate zones in the United State and Canada, and are also found in Africa, Asia, some parts of Europe and Polynesia. Like the glow of a flame from a campfire, reddish orange petals radiate out from deep yellow centers creating an intense pop of color contrast to the cooler green foliage.

If the brilliant color doesn’t grab you, this continuous bloomer with flowers that stay open for long periods of time fading only to allow more blossoms to push forward will. From spring to fall, you will enjoy this heat loving annual in your part to full sun garden. These are easy to care for plants that will give more than they get from you all season long.

Campfire Flame Bidens Care

Requiring a medium maintenance schedule of light fertilization and watering, this rebloomer prefers a slightly acid soil of 5.8 to 6.2. It is cold sensitive, so put plants out after the danger of last frost. It functions well as a container plant as well as being massed out in your landscape or border. Insect infestations are not common, but air circulation is key to keeping it vigorous.

Deadheading is not required, but due to its enthusiasm when planted where it thrives best, some shearing or light pruning may be necessary to keep it within its bounds. Container gardening makes this an easy process for you. Enjoy pairing this low to medium annual with sedums, solenostemons, calibrachoas, medium tall grasses, dahlias and chartreuse ipomoeas, or sweet potato vines.

Campfire Flame Bidens Spacing

As with most plants planted in moist soil and light shade, powdery mildew can become a problem that is easily solved with proper plant spacing. Topping out at about 14 inches and spreading up to 16 inches, bidens will appreciate room to grow, about 10 to 12 inches apart will work fine. As a hybrid, Campfire Flame Bidens will not reseed and take over your garden year after year so cleaning up after cold weather returns is easy.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
