Heavenly Starfire looks great planted in front of that purple-leaved bush. I love the planter and the larkspurs!

RE: Early blooms

Your planter looks superb. I've never had one look that fancy, but then again, I think I counted 7 different kinds of flowers in there, and I don't think I've ever tried to put that much variety in a single planter. I should try it.

RE: Early blooms

Marie Hooper Memorial & Web of Intrigue are my favorites. Love larkspur too, although mine don't tend to reseed so attractively as yours. Great planter!


 o
Planter

Planter has two shades of angelonia (white is not visible in picture), lavender vining geranium, dark verbena, purple superpetunia, and two shades of calibrachoa.

correction

Actually, there are three shades of calibrachoa. Also, I am embarrassed that the daylily Isle of Zanzibar is mislabeled; the one pictured is Tar and Feather, and the bud count is about 10-12.

RE: Early blooms

Don't you just love WEB OF INTRIGUE? Here it has over 20 scapes this year so far that are above the foliage with others making their way up.
All the pics are great. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Early blooms

Yes, Web of Intrigue has the vigor I am always looking for. My only reservation is that it doesn't take the heat well (but doesn't degrade as badly as some).
