Bidens- Taka Tuka Yellow Centre (seedling)

Bidens ferulifolia


  • Perennial to 60cm
  • Bee attracting
  • Great in hanging baskets

A compact perennial (often grown as an annual) originally from Mexico, growing to 60cm tall. The green divided leaves form a neat mound, and the striking daisy like flowers with gold centres and red/orange outer petals bloom in the heat of summer. Suitable for wildflower plantings, beds, borders and containers. Ideal for hanging baskets. Drought tolerant once established. Also known as 'Tickseed'.

Seedlings are each approximately 5-8cm tall (excluding soil), grown in a fully biodegradable wrapper so they're ready to plant directly into a pot or the garden. Seedlings are packaged in a 100% recycled blister pack to protect the plants during shipping. Planting instructions included.

How To Grow

Seedlings are packaged in a 100% recycled blister pack to protect them during shipping. The blister packs can be recycled in most household recycling bins.

On Delivery:

Carefully open the packaging and inspect your seedlings. Gently remove any damaged leaves. Some leaves may have yellowed in transit; there is no need to remove these as they will recover once the seedlings are planted.

If seedlings are very dry, fill a small container with water and submerge the rootball for a few minutes, then allow to drain. Do not leave seedlings submerged in water.

Plant seedlings within 24 hours of receiving them. Seedlings will dry out quickly if they are not planted soon after arrival. If the weather is not suitable for planting, plant seedlings in a pot and place it in a protected position until conditions are suitable for planting outside.


Plant seedlings in the garden or a pot so they will receive the sunlight and soil conditions described on the pack.

To do this:

  1. Fill a pot with good quality potting mix or dig over and enrich garden soil.
  2. Make a hole larger than the size fo the seedling's rootball.
  3. Place the entire rootball in the hole, so it is level with the top of the soil; there is no need to remove the biodegradable wrapper around the rootball.
  4. Cover with soil and water in well.
  5. Protect seedlings from extreme heat or cold, slugs, snails and other pests until they are established.
