Salvia 'Hot Lips' Gaura Viola 'Etain'
Annuals are available in such a range of sizes, colors, and shapes that it's hard to limit myself, but I always try to grow and offer varieties that I am confident will do well in our unique climate.

 


 

Pansies are a long-time favorite and these Cool Wave Pansies are a breakthough plant that have a semi-trailing habit making them ideal in container gardens, hanging gardens, and as filler plants in the landscape. 

The four varieties we have for this season include: Cool Wave 'Golden Yellow', 'Violet Wing', 'Blue Skies', and Blueberry Swirl' @ $2.50 and are now sale priced at $18 for full trays of 18.


We suggest trimming them by half in early July to allow the plant to tough out the heat and return fuller and more vigorous through late summer and into fall.

 

 

Petunias are by far the easiest and most popular annual we offer. Available as mounding with a slight branching habit, these are excellent varieties to use in ground or as taller plants for the back or center of a container garden.
Available in 6" pots @ $8 and in 4" pots @ $4. 
And then there are the vigorously trailing petunias so popular in hanging gardens, for the edges of container gardens, or as plant alone varieties that flow over and down the sides of larger containers. These Petunias are grown from rooted cuttings, not from seed, so they have no built in drive to go to seed eliminating that dreaded chore...deadheading. Again, available now in 6" pots @ $8 and in 4" pots @ $4.

 


 

Calibrachoa are charming in every way and make excellent fillers in container gardens. Self-cleaning so no need to deadhead. Available in 6" pots @ $8 and in 4" pots @ $4.

Bidens, Alyssum, and Bacopa are excellent in hanging gardens, as fillers, and in landscape beds.
Geraniums
Geraniums for this season are available as upright and semi-trailing/mounding varieties that can be planted by themselves or in a container with other colorful annuals.
