MegaCopa™ Versa White Bacopa
  • This series of bacopa is notable for its well-branched habits, large flowers and improved heat performance.
  • Controlled habit is grower-friendly and offers better centerfill than other bacopa.
  • Largest flower size in the industry, with showy blooms that cover the plant, driving impulse sales at retail.
  • Versa White is ideal for quart or 4-in. (10-cm) pots. It hides older flowers better than other varieties and has more flower cover in a smaller container.
