Fall’s blazing hues of orange, gold and red blend artfully with pretty pink tones, like those in found in this basket of blushing annuals. The trio features frost-hardy Rose Veined Trailing Supertunia (small pink petunia), Blushing Princess sweet alyssum and Royal Magenta Supertunia (large deep pink petunia). Supertunias withstand light freezes to 30°F, while dainty sweet alyssum bounces back from hard freezes of short duration. In other words, this mix of bloomers can bring on color from early fall to whenever consistent cold arrives in your neck of the woods.
Shady spots explode with color when you draft botany’s big guns for shade: caladium, begonia and ivy. This pot showcases classic container garden design. A white and green caladium stands in as thriller, with Dragon Wing Pink begonia as filler and green ivy as spiller. It’s a blend that easily fits on any porch or deck to bring season-long color. Dragon Wing begonias are a shade all-star, strutting their stuff in part to full shade. These begonias are low maintenance, heat tolerant beauties that pump out flowers until fall’s first frost. This planting combination looks great in a pot, but would transition easily to planting beds, too.
