Color For All Seasons

shade annuals

Flowering annuals add a splash of color to enliven your garden throughout the year. Swansons has plants in bold bright colors or subtle pastel hues, perfect for shade or full sun.

• For sunny spots, we’ve got you covered from
   Alyssum to Zinnias.
• For shady areas, try ever-popular impatiens
   and begonias, or experiment with a fragrant
   heliotrope or funky new coleus hybrid.
• For containers, consider gently cascading
   white-flowered Bacopa ‘Snowstorm’ or
   chartreuse sweet potato vine Ipomea
• For that trellis, amazing robust vines like Chilean
   Glory tower 12–15' in one season, sporting tubular flowers that hummingbirds love.
• For late season color, kick it up with vibrant Dahlias or African Daisies.

In grandmother's day, only one variety of petunia was available. Swansons now carries a prolific selection of petunias in a full spectrum of colors.

Calibrachoa Wave Petunias

• Calibrachoa or Superbell have small flowers, come in a wide range of colors, and
   are excellent in containers or baskets. They are prolific bloomers until a hard frost.
• Wave petunias provide exuberant ground cover as they spread over flowerbeds
   or rockeries.
• Supertunias have large flowers and shine in hanging baskets and containers.
• Bedding pack petunias (aka, the petunias Grandma used to grow) are now available
   in more colors, more sizes, and have improved weatherability.

Fast-growing varieties like the wave and supertunias require more fertilizer than the average petunia. We recommend Dr. Earth's Organic All Purpose Fertilizer to keep flowers looking fabulous all season long.

Beautiful hanging baskets in stock now provide instant, portable, uplifting color.
