For decades, our fans have ranked pink and purple as their top two flower colors and who can blame them? Look how perfectly they coordinate here in our Storm Shadow recipe for full sun containers and hanging baskets. Be sure to include all three ingredients to create balance among the deep and light tones. Though they will start out in spring with a mounded form, expect the flower-laden stems to trail at least 30” by summer.
Fairy Dust® Pink Cuphea
Though not yet well-known in the flower world, this dainty flowered, heat tolerant annual sprinkles in just the right amount of fine texture among its larger flowered companions. Think of it like a pink baby’s breath, complimenting everything you pair it with.
Supertunia® Bordeaux™ Petunia
The lavish two-toned light and dark purple blossoms of this award-winning Supertunia appear abundantly on cascading stems from spring until frost without deadheading. Its dark veining provides a dramatic, grounding contrast among a sea of softer colors in this recipe.
Superbena® Stormburst Verbena
This staff favorite is one of our very best Superbenas. Its impressive flower clusters are nearly three times the size of some older verbenas, and its striped lavender blue and white flowers are an absolute delight.
