This warm weather has me thinking about the beach. Not the sea and sand, variety, though. I’m talking about this Bahama Beach combination from Proven Winners. This gorgeous container planting was inspired by the bold colors of a Caribbean beach.
Creating Your Bahama Beach Container
To create your own planting, combine Supertunia® Bordeaux™ Petunia hybrid, Superbells® Lemon Slice™ Calibrachoa, and Laguna™ Sky Blue Lobelia. Not only will you have a beautiful, heat-tolerant combination but these plants also attract butterflies and hummin
gbirds. Who doesn’t want more of those little guys in the garden?
Here’s what I love about the flowers in this combination.
- Supertunia® Bordeaux™– They won’t get leggy or break open, and they won’t suffer from the balding effect in the middle of a planting. No deadheading is needed. As my friends at Proven Winners say, “They bury their own.” The light purple bloom with the deep purple center make it perfect for just about any combination. And what’s even better is they’re both heat and cold tolerant.
- Superbells® Lemon Slice™ Calibrachoa – This little “slice” of heaven is low maintenance, and you may have guessed, it, no deadheading needed. It’s a perfect color annual, in my opinion, with the yellow and white pinwheel pattern. They do best in containers with well-drained soil. I like to use them in window boxes and hanging containers.
- Laguna™ Sky Blue Lobelia – I’m not one to pick favorites, but I do love the color blue. This has to be the best heat-tolerant lobelia on the market. In my very Southern garden, I can grow this gorgeous sky blue flower. They’re so perky and bright. I like to plant extras of these to make sure the blue color shines through all summer.
