I’ll Have a White Russian
You wouldn’t have to know much about me to guess that the Proven Winners new introduction for 2012 that floats my boat the most is Supertunia® White Russian. I love dark plants. I love white gardens. This plant is the Reese’s® Peanut Butter Cup of annuals for me.
I cannot wait to set terra cotta pots brimming full of it in my garden, next to a thick stand of Decadence™ ‘Dutch Chocolate’ Baptisia, Black Mondo Grass or a rambling bit of Sweet Caroline Raven Ipomoea. It’ll also look nice next to white plants like Intensia® White Phlox. And I do just so happen to have a brand new black and white garden. Coincidence? I think not…
Not to skip the obvious, dang this plant will look HOT with the more coffee-colored Coleus, like Colorblaze® Velvet Mocha®, deep-toned grasses like Graceful Grasses® Vertigo® or Sweet Caroline Bewitched (a sweet little potato vine) which is also improved upon for this year.
Also, it’s named after alcohol*, which is always a selling point with me.
*And yes, I got through the whole post without mentioning The Big Lewbowski
