Wow... as a container plant, this variety of sutera is outstanding. I put some in a partial shade container this summer. In spite of the wet weather, it grew very nicely, spilling over the side of the pot and flowering non-stop. Because it was so beautiful and easy to take care of, I plan to use it again.

I have this Bacopa (Sutera) cordata growing in the landscape. It is doing quite well as a groundcover. Reaching no higher than ground level, I see it getting nowhere near the 4-8" advertised, but that suits me just fine. As far as propagation goes, this particular plant is sending out roots as it spreads . . . nice!

I have my Giant Snowflake in a terracotta pot and it has done really well. I love the delicate white flowers of this plant. It currently sits in partial shade and I water it every other day. It very quickly grew and spread out draping itself over the edges of my pot. I just love how this plant drapes over the sides of the container creating a very whimsical look.
