My superpowers explained

You may have already read or heard that I'm special and have supernatural all-weather garden performance powers. But what does "no matter the weather" exactly mean? I will explain my special features below for you.

I’m resistant to wind.

Strong wind can shake me without harming me. I like it when the wind blows and caresses my branches, leaves and flowers. But what I like most is to remain unchanging under its blowing; I don’t let it disfigure me and affect my sinuous semi-trailing habit shape.

I’m heat-tolerant.

Like everyone else, I love to be in the sun when it is high up in the sky. However, if you have to use sunscreen to protect yourself a little from its rays, I can rely on my inner resistance to withstand temperatures as high as 35°C without losing my brilliance in flowers and leaves colour.

I’m resistant to rain.

Are you afraid of summer showers? I am brave enough to say I am not. I like being under them without getting in trouble. I have strong recovery abilities to start shining again even after the worst.

I’m cold-resistant.

Brrrrr, it’s cold outside, but I flower even with just 5°C. I don’t get scared of the cold. I keep my leaves and flowers with me and enjoy the moment preparing for a new season.

My family is famous.

Few can boast of being part of a famous family. The MNP / Suntory family where I come from is the same as the successful brands like Surfinia® (trailing Petunia), Sundaville® (Mandevilla/Dipladenia), Senetti® (Pericallis), Million Bells® (Calibrachoa), Princettia® (Poinsettia) and Surdiva® (Scaevola).

I have unique flowers.

Before you even look at me, my name says it, but please take a moment to admire my unique star-shaped flowers because you have never seen anything similar, at least not in the Scaevola (aemula) family.

I like shades.

Place me even in the shade; I’ll be a diva anyway. Place me wherever you want; no matter if your balcony is half in shade and sun, I will survive darkness and light, staying beautiful and eye-catching.

I attract vegetation.

I love nature, insects and mammals. I am sure you will also like it when we have created a small wildlife ecosystem in your garden.

No matter the

weather. country. place. spot. heat. rain. cold. wind. I'll shine

for you...

What professionals say about me!

Stardiva® is revolutionary if you consider its star-shaped flowers with the traditional flower shape of Scaevola eamula like on our Surdiva® brand. Which nickname always has been the "fan flower'. We now have to review the species as a whole for the better!

For a marketeer in floriculture, Stardiva® is a real treasure. And to market, it is a feast in terms of unique selling points. It has almost too many good features that it is hard to choose which to emphasise. It's the shape, the quality; everything is golden.

Erwin GiezenFloricultural marketeer

Stardiva® is the ultimate annual plant for modern consumers in terms of quality, flower power, trendiness, and sustainability. Stardiva® makes gardening fun again for everyone. And due to its tone of voice, it also appeals to young gardeners of the 21st century.

Women are my besties. Therefore I support the local Pink Ribbon Foundation and who are suffering from or have been affected by, or who work to advance the understanding of breast cancer.
