BACOPA

BACOPA

The Bacopa belongs to the family of the Scrophulariaceae/Plantaginaceae and comes from the hot regions of South Africa where it is perennial. In Italy, it is cultivated as a seasonal plant and can live several years if sheltered in autumn and in spring. This fast-growing plant reaches up to 10-50 cm in height. It requires damp soil rich in humus. It tolerates well green pruning, after which it thrives. It produces a myriad of small, white flowers during the entire summer period. Thanks to its shrub-like shape and pendulous branches, it may be used in hanging vases. The August sun slows down its growth, but in September, if fertilized and watered, it flowers well into autumn. It must be fed once a month with a soluble fertilizer, dissolved in the watering can.
