A cheery, laid-back annual that’s native to North America, Goldilocks Rocks® Bidens ferulifolia contributes a stunning floral display to containers and gardens in sunny locations. If you’re partial to plant varieties that don’t require constant care and attention, then Goldilocks Rocks® is for you. Don’t worry, though, this relaxed Bidens variety is anything but lazy! Large, bright-gold flowers bloom continuously from spring until fall, even in hot, dry weather.
Goldilocks Rocks® features fine, trailing foliage that somehow maintains a neat mounding habit. Yes, this plant manages to be trailing and mounding at the same time! That’s why it’s the perfect “filler” or “spiller” for nearly any combination planting. Gardeners across the country have noticed that the large gold flowers look great with nearly any other plant, making the Goldilocks Rock® a real team player.
Goldilocks Rocks® Bidens Care
Goldilocks Rocks® might be relaxed, but they’ll still need a little bit of attention to perform at their best. Keep the soil evenly moist, especially when the weather gets hot and dry.
Fertilize containers regularly to watch the plant thrive. Bidens enjoy full-sun locations, as well. No need to deadhead to enjoy the continued bloom.
Goldilocks Rocks® Bidens Spacing
Bidens Goldilocks Rocks® can be a vigorous grower, but it’s unlikely to smother nearby plants during the growing season. Plant them in the ground with 8-12” of space. They can be planted closer together in containers, with 6-8” of space between plants.
