Looking at photographs in foreign magazines for gardeners, I was looking for new ideas for decorating flowerpots. Most of the plants were familiar to me except for one, which resembled a scattering of gold stars coreopsis. Only in one place, in the signatures, I found the Latin name of the plant - Bidens ferulifolia.

Two years have passed since then, and during this time I managed not only to learn the Russian name of the balcony summer, popular in Europe, but also to buy its seeds and try the plant in action.

So, meet - the feruloliferous train, or bidense, has delicate, lacy leaves, like fennel, thin strong creeping shoots and charming yellow clouds of small stars-flowers. This South American species of a series should not be confused with medicinal - a series of drooping (Bidens cernua) and a series of tripartite (Bidens tripartita). The latter grow on the banks of ponds, rivers, lakes and swamps.

Bidense appeared on the garden "scene" only in 1992, but has already won millions of hearts. Breeders took it with interest and bred a dozen varieties, among which the most famous are Goldie, Samsara, Golden Goddess and Golden Eye.

From experience, I was convinced that this series has many advantages: it is drought-resistant, cold-resistant, undemanding to the soil, tolerates thickened plantings and cutting well.

The new summer plant was grown in containers through seedlings. At the end of March, she sowed in a ditch on the windowsill, and in May, without prior picking, she planted the seedlings in hanging baskets and flowerpots. Light return frosts to plants do not care. Already in June, the first small "daisies" blossomed on the line.

Every two weeks, the plants in the flowerpot were fed with phosphorus-potassium fertilizer, and, apparently, therefore, the train bloomed without rest, not only all summer, but also most of autumn through October inclusive. By the way, I specially left a few "heads" for the seeds, and they managed to ripen perfectly.

Bidense is a godsend for me. I believe that this plant has successfully complemented the company of my flowerpot favorites - zonal and fragrant pelargonium, verbena, tuberous begonia, fuchsia and variegated mint.
