Bidens ferurifolia-Bidens

Propagating Bidens should be done in the fall since it is only grown in Zones 8-10, by dividing the root ball or layering then transplanting when the roots are mature. This plant has yellow to orange blooms in mid summer to early fall, can reach a height of 6" and because it is fragrant honeybees and butterflies are found nearby. It is also a prolific self seeder and prefers a moist well draining soil, full sun, is evergreen, its leaves are dark green and fern-like, needs to be pruned back hard periodically and would be great in hanging baskets and is deciduous.
