Bidens Bee Happy™ Red

Order WebTrack
The Bee Happy Series is about 35% more vigorous than ‘Bee Alive’, and about 50% less vigorous than ‘Bee Bold’. It features a semi-upright habit, and the plants can be grown closer together with less spacing. It is easier to control with less PGRs.
Red bicolor bidens offers a great improvement on habit and branching compared to original Bee Happy.
