For patio containers: What more can be said? Supertunia® Royal Velvet Petunia has been a Proven Winners® top seller for many years. Gardeners depend on this all season performer for its deep purple blooms that will actually have people thinking of velvet every time they walk by. It is the perfect choice for a mixed container, or on its own in a favorite pot or basket.
For window boxes: Impress the neighbors with these luscious lilac-colored blooms as they cascade down from a window box. Superbena® Royale Chambray Verbena is a vigorous grower that is very heat resistant. Count on this variety to perform all summer long.
For the front of the landscape bed: New this year from Proven Winners®, ‘Pardon My Purple’ Monarda is a petite perennial that offers 2 ½-3” blooms in the heat of the summer. This easy-to-grow, fragrant perennial is hardy to zone 4a, reaches 10-12” in height and is loved by butterflies.
