Some people love white flowers, and some love blue. Both will love the two-toned petals of Scaevola Whirlwind Starlight. The annual S. aemula, also called Fan Flower, blooms long and continuously from planting through first frost. Pretty petals surround yellow centers up and down the flower stalk in whirls of summer color. The plant is heat tolerant and drought tolerant and attracts bees to its blooms.

Whirlwind Starlight grows in a trailing fashion to only 8 to 14 inches high but with branches that reach nearly 2 feet long. It’s a pretty spiller for patio containers and hanging baskets, and the trailing branches can spread out along the ground and act as a groundcover or edge plant in garden beds or other areas of the landscape. It can grow out straight or cascade down a hill or terrace. This new annual is about to become a favorite of gardeners.

Whirlwind® Starlight Fan Flower Care

Plant Scaevola Whirlwind Starlight in full sun in most any soil type. Give the plant average water and plenty of sun and then watch it grow. There is no need to deadhead or trim the plant. It will continue growing and blooming on its own. When planting your Scaevola, be sure to place it near the outer edge of pots or where it has room to spread in the landscape.

Adding compost or a balanced fertilizer early in the growing season can help feed Whirlwind Starlight. Fertilize container- or basket-grown plants a little more often to keep them thriving. Other than that, this is a low-maintenance powerhouse of blooms.

Whirlwind® Starlight Fan Flower Spacing

Space your Scaevola depending on where and how you use the plant. In containers and baskets, it can go near the edge and will grow over the pot. When using as a groundcover, place plants about 10 to 12 inches apart so they can grow into one another during the summer.

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.
