Chenille sports long tassels of red, fuzzy flowers late spring to frost. These compact plants perform well alone in hanging baskets or in combos trailing over the edges of pots. They add an exotic look to any setting including indoors (plus they are fun to pet.)
This easy, low-maintainence annual really packs a punch with bright orange flowers late spring to frost. It can grow in full sun and its full, bushy growth habit makes it ideal for any type of container. They combine with practically anything; try Sweet Potato vine and Coleus for a knockout tropical look.
Tuberous begonias are flashy with their large, bright flowers and dark bronze leaves. The combination is drop dead gorgeous. Their bushy upright growth habit makes them perfect for window boxes and edging garden beds. Combine with Lobelia and Bacopa for a sweet hanging basket. (Begonia 'Million Kisses Elegance' pictured here.)
This is a stunning Coleus, with burgundy leaves and bright magenta centers. The contrast of colors intensifies in full sun. It is a large-growing variety which makes it great alone or as a fantastic thriller. Combine with New Guinea Impatiens and Tradescantia.
Masses of small white flowers float on top of small leaves, from late spring to frost. This plant is fluffy in growth habit and offers a delicate texture. It is easy and low maintenance; fantastic for planting under roses and in mixed containers. Combine with Cast Iron Plant and Sweet Potato vine for a clean, distinctive container. Also great with Geraniums and Lobelia.
It is the foliage of this fuchsia that really grabs your attention: bright golden leaves overlaid with orange/pink veins. Single pink and purple flowers attract hummingbirds all summer. Its trailing habit makes it perfect for hanging baskets.
The combination of dark burgundy foliage and bright salmon, firecracker flowers make this fuchsia a staple in annual containers. Not only does it perform well with minimal care, but it is also a hummingbird magnet! Combine with lighter colors such as variegated Impatiens for eye-popping contrast or dark foliage with orange accents such as bronze sweet potato vine and tuberous begonias for a monochromatic design.
This series of New Guinea Impatiens sport bright variegated leaves in shades of gold and green with orange highlights. Large flowers come in shades of white, orange, red and pink. This fusion of foliage and flower create a dramatic tropical look for shady areas. Painted Paradise Impatiens blend well with Coleus, Creeping Jenny and Lamium.
An extremely easy to grow and rewarding annual for sun or shade. Perilla 'Magilla' resembles a large leaved burgundy Coleus with a magenta stripe and green accents. Unlike Coleus, Perilla 'Magilla' does not set flower spikes above the foliage, and it is a bit more cold tolerant. It is a fantastic partner with bananas, Purple Fountain grass or Hydrangeas.
This gold-foliaged form of Talinum offers a unique succulent look for the shade garden. When the season heats up, the chartreuse rosettes are topped with numerous sprays of tiny magenta, jewel-like berries. They especially make an impact lining borders or in mass plantings and they may reseed for next year too! Combines well with succulents in the sun and Impatiens in the shade.
Finally more choices for flowering spillers for shade containers! The newer trailing Torenias offer lovely two-toned, open-mouthed flowers in shades of blue, purple, pink white and yellow. They love the summer heat and combine well with Euphorbia 'Diamond Frost', Bacopa, Geraniums and much more.
