Product Details

If you’re looking for an intriguing flower form and dazzling violet-blue color that will flow from patio pots and window boxes, the fan-shaped flowers of mounding, trailing Scaevola Surdiva® Blue Violet are a great contender. These plants bask in full sun, producing waves of rich color and mingling with other plants, and they shake off heat and drought to flower well into fall. Also for use as a ground cover in garden beds, these Australian natives perform best in hot, dry sites with plenty of sun.

The genus Scaevola has well over 100 species that are native to Australia and Polynesia. They are noteworthy for the unique shape of their flowers, which appear in the form of fingerlike projections on a single side, giving the appearance of an open fan or hand. Common names for the genus include Fan Flower and Half Flower, while the botanical name derives from a Greek word meaning “left-handed.” Scaevola plants are evergreen perennials in their native climates and include climbers, shrubs, and small trees. At White Flower Farm, we grow the trailing cultivars of Scaevola aemula as annuals in containers, window boxes, and hanging baskets. These heat- and humidity-tolerant plants also make fine seasonal ground covers, intermingling among other plants while offering a long season of carefree color.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it.

Latin Name Pronunciation: skay-vo'-lah

Plants in this tropical Asian genus display their petals in a fanlike arrangement on one side of the stem, which gives the flowers an entirely original look. They also bloom tirelessly through summer heat, even in the humidity of the Deep South. Scaevola makes an excellent container plant and serves equally well for bedding or along the edge of a mixed border. Perennial in Zones 9-10.

Grow in full sun or partial shade and plant in average garden soil or in a well-drained potting mix in containers.
