Colorful plants that offer sweeping swathes of color are wonderful additions to landscapes. As I well know, filling those large spaces - I have a 60 foot by 8-foot bed where I fill in lots of space with annuals - can get expensive. I love how annuals provide constant, all-summer color and flexibility to change my color scheme. I also enjoy a good deal which is why I often choose fast-growing, wide-spreading annuals that I can depend on to fill the border with color. Here are some of my favorites for adding lots of color with not that many plants.

We all love ‘the hunt’ in spring, the stroll down the garden center aisles, looking left and right for the new plant varieties you’ve been hearing about for months! Then, the excitement of seeing the newest cultivars, putting them in your cart, mentally planning just exactly how you are going to use it…that’s the joy of the season ahead.

Every garden has challenges that you must tackle in order to be successful in creating a beautiful space. Long term, you can make it easier on yourself by choosing durable plants that are well-suited to the area you have in mind. 

 

Bobo Hydrangea

Panicle hydrangeas – also known as peegee hydrangeas, hardy hydrangeas, and Limelight hydrangeas, are the easiest to grow, most adaptable of all hydrangeas. We like to call them the “black thumb hydrangea” because they are so easy and reliable, they make even people who have no experience (or claim to have a black thumb, which we don’t believe even exists, frankly) look like garden rock stars. So don’t be intimidated by this guide – we created it just to address the myriad questions we get on these popular plants.
