Patriotic Annuals For Your Garden
The first step to crafting a garden that sports your American pride is incorporating annuals. There are so many ways to include annuals in your garden while simultaneously supporting the USA!
Annual Hanging Baskets are a great place to start if you are looking to bring some red, white, and blue into the landscape. Our Headliner Night Sky Petunia hanging basket brings the stars of our flag to life!
In addition to hanging baskets, there are a variety of red and white flowering annuals that are perfect for mixed planters and flower beds. Combining red and white petunias, along with red geraniums and white vinca, with a splash of dusty miller throughout is a subtle and stunning way to show your support for the USA!
