Killer Combo with Pretty Much Picasso

Some plant combinations deserve a star on a walk of fame, some sort of trophy, a spot on a wall in a museum but we’ll settle for a spot in a few containers in your yard. I like this sunny combination for a very tall or built-in, hip-high box so you can really appreciate all you have goin’ on! Use equal amounts of each of these plants and make sure that you’re using at least a 24” pot in order to get the distribution right! It’d be ideal to use 3 of each and to PACK THEM IN.

First ingredient: Supertunia® Pretty Much Picasso® Petunia is so interesting and cool, all it needs is a partner plant to SET. IT. OFF. Dark leaves and intense color is what Dr. Picasso has ordered...

Second ingredient: Infinity® Light Purple New Guinea Impatiens, this adds the drama, know what I’m sayin’? The dark foliage kills it. And by that, I mean it’s totally sick. And by that I mean.... Nevermind.

Third ingredient:  Luscious Citrus Blend Lantana sprawls amongst the top 2 and delivers the PUNCH. Without this, you’re going a little monochromatic... Not that there’s anything wrong with that!

Last ingredient: Goldilocks Lysimachia will drip over the sides of your pot like a pro, the yellow foliage adds another pop of hot color while somehow still being cool. This is one of those plants I couldn’t live without. A perfect “completer” plant for so many containers. Goldilocks, you complete me.

The four plants, in lots of sun, will really make a lovely combo.

What about the different light requirement of the new guinea impatiens?
