Solenia Begonias: Not your grandmother's Begonia, Solenia® welcomes a bright new day in Begonia growing! Not only is this compact plant very tolerant of sun, it also stands up to heat and wind, and resists powdery mildew. You can grow it fearlessly in part shade to full sun, where it will set big double blooms over three seasons! There's never been anything quite like it.The blooms begin in late spring, fully double and measuring about 3 inches wide. Sporting petals of rich deep pink, they are distinctively beautiful. And that's a good thing, because you'll be seeing a lot of them, as spring turns to summer and summer to fall with no decrease in flower power! Yet unlike earlier varieties, which tended to become top-heavy at the height of the season, Solenia® is so well-branched that it never topples or snaps.
Banking the blooms are large, succulent, glossy heart-shaped leaves 2 to 4 inches long. Very dark green, they add dramatic tones to the display, and show off the brightness of the petals very beautifully. They keep this plant handsome even out of bloom!
Solenia® reaches 10 to 12 inches high and 18 to 24 inches wide. It looks terrific in the annual bed as well as in containers of all types.
Supertunia "Vista Bubblegum"
This remarkable Petunia fills a basket to overflowing, or pours out across a bed in a wave of vibrant pink blossoms. Pink Vista Bubblegum complemented the flowers or foliage of every companion we tried—purple, blue, silver, white, and many other pinks. These mounding, spreading plants are vigorous growers and indifferent to heat. Virtual flower factories, they seemed to bloom forever. Whether planted solo or entwining with other plants in a container or bed, Bubblegum was an eye-catching success.
Even if you live in a hot climate, SunPatiens® will grow in full sun! The perfect solution for gardens that wind through both sunny and shady spots, it blooms from spring through summer and into fall, with big 2- to 3-inch flowers on bushy, well-branched plants. There's no other Impatiens like it in the world!
