Stardiva™ Star Blue

Finally, we met plant lovers! Where have you been for all this time? Knowing better my brothers and sisters in the wide offer of the house of plants where I come from. I am a new one! I arrived this year with my other collection mates, the Stardiva® Star Lavender and Stardiva® Star White; we are the three first stars of this journey in the Scaevola (aemula) world.

But let’s talk about me; I want to be a diva on my page, as my name is sad. I can offer you a massive selection of star-shaped flowers: tiny and brilliant coloured in charming blue. My colour is our trio’s most intense, giving me energy and a great personality. I am not a shy plant; I like to have my hanging basket where I can shine in the sunlight and swing my arms in the fresh air. But of course, I am also willing to share the scene with others; I fit very well into a mixed basket where I enhance the other colours with my presence.


I’m a diva, but you’re the real star of this unique gardening story!

Hi, garden plant lover. I'm Stardiva™, the first-ever Scaevola (aemula) variety with star-shaped flowers on this planet. Next, I'm the strongest compact flowering summer plant out there. Only water me now and then, and I'll rock it. So, no matter the weather. Regardless of the country, place or spot you put me in. From Norway to Spain and from Dublin to Budapest. If it's rainy, windy, sunny, chilly cold (5°C) or tropical hot (35°C).

Do you need some help?

My business partners

I'm a grower; where can I buy Stardiva™ young plants or plants for testing? Good question! Below you will find all my current business partners for test material (MNP / Suntory), clean starting tissue (in vitro), young plants and even the FlowerTrials® 2023 event in Leimuiderbrug where you can see me in real life for the very first time and add me to your portfolio collection. Hope to see you soon...

Are you a Scaevola fan?

The Surdiva® - Scaevola eamula collection from MNP / Suntory is elegant, arty and always in style. The classic fan-shaped flowers that grow on short terminal spikes are distinctive and classy, hinting at art deco. Surdiva® is one of the most heat-tolerant plants in the world. In the past years, we have worked hard to improve existing varieties, knocking them into the park (and hopefully your garden). The Surdiva® brand is like the older sister of Stardiva™.
