Scaevola aemula Top Pot White ['Wesscaetowhi'] PP19728 (White Fan Flower) - An evergreen herbaceous perennial that grows as a low 1 foot tall sprawling mat to 2 feet wide with soft nearly succulent medium green colored-coarsely toothed leaves. The 1 inch wide fan-shaped flowers appear in mass from spring through summer with white petal lobes and yellow throats. Plant in full to part sun in a well-drained soil and irrigate regularly to occasionally - will rebound if allowed to wilt prior to irrigation but is touchy about overwatering and heavy soils. Hardy to light frost and short durations around 30 F but is also a useful annual in colder areas. The Top Pot series is the result of a breeding program conducted by Joseph and Heinrich Westhoff of Westhoff Gartenbau in Sudlohn, Germany. The goal of the program was to create new compact and freely-flowering Scaevola cultivars with attractive flower coloration. Top Pot White was the result of the cross pollination in 2003 of the pollen parent Scaevola aemula '03P00'with the seed parent Scaevola aemula '03P10'. It was discovered and then selected the following year for its compact mounding freely branching growth habit and freely flowering white flowers. It received United States Plant Patent number 19,728 on February 17, 2009.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit.
