General Information: The vigorous Bee Happy series produces new flowers to grow over the top of used-up flower heads, so it always looks fresh and colorful. Excellent for attracting pollinators, such as bees and butterflies.

Grower Information:

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.
Red bicolor bidens offers a great improvement on habit and branching compared to original Bee Happy.
