Annuals catching my eye this summer


Caladium have always been a bit ho-hum for me, until I met ‘Red Flash’ from Longfield Gardens. The red and green leaves are phenomenal. Makes you wish for Christmas in July.


The pink blooms of this New Guinea Impatiens ‘Spreading Salmon Variegated’ just scream against the green-edged cream foliage. Great container plant (even if it’s a bit of a thirsty one)!


Coleus ‘Twist and Twirl’ is the perfect lead against a backdrop of ‘Hurricane Jenni’. A whole lot of dancin’ goin’ on between these two.


This is a dainty yet gorgeous little annual – Phlox Intensia® ‘Star Brite’ – that caught my eye at a mid-season sale at Danville Gardens. It’s now starting to bloom again after the initial transplant shock. Loving it.
