Bidens 'Tweety' is a herbaceous perennial plant, which makes a nice cushion shaped plant. It has profuse golden yellow flowers from winter through spring and all through summer. Very showy and easy care, with few pests or diseases. Likes full sun and well drained soil. Give it a handful of slow release fertiliser in spring and again in summer, and trim lightly if needed to encourage a dense habit. Great as a container plant, for massed plantings and for borders. Takes some frost, and is good in heat.
