Surdiva Scaevolas are much more compact than the others on the market and are excellent for 4-inch production, window boxes and baskets. They are easy to grow and excellent in combination plantings.

Growers used to have to rely on a lot of pinching to keep scaevolas in check with their rangy habits, but the Surdiva series solves this problem and offers three key colors – Blue, Light Blue and White.We’ve mixed Surdivas with Suntory’s ‘Silver Leaf Yellow’ chrysocephalum and produced striking combinations of blue and yellow.
