I am once again writing about my garden each month. You'll get to see the good and the bad, after all gardening is a different adventure every year.

Each year we introduce new plants, and 2016 is a banner year for new Proven Winners®.  We have 43 new annuals and I want to give you a quick introduction to each of them.  However, with 43 plants I am going to break them into three different groups based loosely on color.  The first group features Cool Hues and Tonal Greens, the second group we are talking about today is Fun and Flirty Bicolors and in our next newsletter will be our third group—Bright, Bold and Hot Colors.  Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I am going to include tons of pictures with ideas to inspire your own creativity.
