Featured New Plants for 2013!

Grass for Annual Pots
Proven Winners Pennisetum 'Vertigo Thriller'

This grass makes a great focal point and adds architectural interest to a planter of annuals. It is very easy to grow in a full sun setting. It is pest and disease-free and grows to 36"-48".

Proven Winners Calibrachoa 'Superbells Lemon Slice'

There is nothing more super than Superbells. Calibrachoas are a new type of plants that sort of look like little Petunias, only Superbells aren't sticky, perk right back up after it rains, and stay compact and bushy even when stressed. 

They grow 6 - 10 inches tall, with long, trailing branches cascading over the sides of hanging baskets and other containers, and spreading over flower beds. Hummingbirds LOVE these!

They are know for their vigor, heat tolerance and resistance to disease. You don't have to deadhead old flowers or pinch back stems. Water only when the top of the soil feels dry. Too much water makes their roots rot (Ick). Full sun. Fertilize once a month. This is an annual, that needs to be re-planted each year.Superbells Lemon Slice

They're great in a sunny location and are deer resistant!
