An early blooming variety, the Superbena series will produce large, rich and fragrant flowers that create a bushy trailing habit with broad leaves. This mildew tolerant, as well as heat tolerant, plant is great for hanging baskets. Mounding habit, can spread up to 24″. Height is 6-10″.
The most eye-catching part of Superbena Violet Ice is the large white eye. Superbena Violet Ice will at times naturally change to a solid color. This can be a single flower in a cluster, a whole umbel of flowers or even an entire branch. For Superbena Violet Ice, this color change is most likely to be to either a striped pattern or solid white. If you prefer that your plant not have this color variation, trimming off the portion of the plant that has flowers with the odd coloration, can minimize how much of your plant ends up with the color change. If you don’t mind the new look, there is no need to do anything. It isn’t detrimental to the plant in any way. This isn’t a common occurrence, but it is something that happens in a small percentage of Superbena Violet Ice plants each year. Photo courtesy of Proven Winners.
