BLIND LOVE RECIPE
Her cheeks blushed red when she saw them—they were just the flowers she had been searching for to bring fun and vibrancy back to her sunny patio. Our Blind Love recipe combines some of our most brilliant and starry blossoms into one big, billowy basket or upright container. And with no need to remove any spent flowers to keep them in bloom, you can count on them to bring the razzle dazzle from spring ‘til fall.
*Best in full sun (6+ hours of sun) to light shade
Supertunia® Royal Magenta® Petunia
Grounding this vivid recipe and creating depth in the composition are these deep magenta-flowered petunias that have a mounded shape at first, and then grow to fill and spill down the sides of the container. We’ve included just one Royal Magenta plant in this recipe and two pots of the striped petunia, but if you’d prefer the solid magenta blooms to take center stage, simply swap the two.
Supertunia® Lovie Dovie™ Petunia
Definitely the most dazzling of the bunch, our starry patterned Lovie Dovie petunias steal the show in this recipe. Pairing it with solid-colored companions really makes it pop and you just can’t help but smile when you see its jazzy blooms. And though it may look fancy, this petunia is just as easy to care for as every other Supertunia. We love how its magenta pink stripes pair perfectly with Supertunia Royal Magenta.
Superbena® Whiteout™ Verbena
The lacy white florets of this amazing verbena are just what is needed to balance the rounded flower shapes in the recipe, plus its coloring echoes the bright white in Supertunia Lovie Dovie impeccably, tying everything together. This staff favorite is one of our very best Superbenas, with flowers nearly three times the size of some older varieties. Over time, its mounded stems become more trailing and mix beautifully among its companions.

Tip For Success:
When should you water? For containers, it’s best to soak them once a day, maybe twice in extreme heat. Landscape plants that are surrounded by mulch require about an inch of water each week. For both, water in the morning and near the roots rather than directly over the foliage of the plants.
*This recipe assumes that 4.5″ plants are being used. To make the recipe work using larger plants, you will need to choose a pot that is larger than our suggested size or use fewer plants of each variety in the recipe.
