Calibrachoa ““ Superbells Double Twilight

The Superbells Double Twilight is a gorgeous, bushy annual with vibrant purple blooms that are deep purple in the centre and fade to a pastel lilac. The scalloped petals are soft and delicate, similar to a petunia. Don’t worry about having to savour these blooms while they last””they’ll stick around from planting to frost!  

Best of all, this plant is happy in the heat and doesn’t require deadheading. Simply plant in full sun, make sure it has good drainage, and water once the top few inches of soil are dry.

You can enjoy these blooms all season long with no need to deadhead. This plant will be happiest in part to full sun and only grow to a modest 10 inches tall.

Helianthus ““ Suncredible Saturn

If you love sunflowers but don’t want the variety that will tower over your garden, the Suncredible Saturn is a fantastic choice to bring the beauty of sunflowers to your landscape without adding the crazy height. It has bright yellow blooms with a brown centre and an orange ring in the middle. These blooms last a little longer than similar varieties, and are great for planting at the back of a flower bed or by a fence. They get up to 2-3 feet tall and prefer to grow in full sun. You can tidy these up as they need it, but these little rays of sunshine don’t require deadheading to keep them blooming.

Verbena ““ Cake Pops Purple

These tiny clusters of purple flowers are not only adorable, but they look like little cake pops! Cake Pops Purple is a great option to add colour and texture to your garden bed or to serve as a filler or spiller in a container arrangement. The flowers are consistently purple, always blooming, and attract pollinators, butterflies, and birds! They grow 10-18 inches tall and require full sun for the best growth. We highly recommend combining them with the Ladybird Sunglow or the Crazytunia Mayan Sunset for bright, beautiful planters with lots of pizazz.
