Bee Happy™ Bidens
The Bee Happy Series is 25 to 35% more vigorous than more compact ‘Bee Alive’, but not quite as vigorous as ‘Bee Bold’. It features an upright habit, and the plants can be grown closer together with less spacing. It is easier to control with less PGRs. NEW Orange: Great habit that matches well with NEW Red Improved.
NEW Red Improved: Red bicolor bidens offers a great improvement on habit and branching compared to original Bee Happy.
