At Proven Winners, we offer a vast array of annuals, perennials and shrubs, though perhaps none are better known than what we fondly call our “Three Supers”: Superbells® Calibrachoa, Supertunia® Petunia and Superbena® Verbena. If you could only choose one Proven Winners variety for your sunny garden and containers this year, try one of these new Supers. You will be absolutely amazed by the beautiful garden performance they deliver from spring into fall.

Seemingly more than ever, crazy colored flowers in all sorts of patterns and shapes not seen before are popping up at garden centers.

Summer sun can be brutally strong in some climates, and it’s not for the faint of heart. These ten heat tolerant annuals not only survive in the heat, they thrive in it.

What comes to mind when you hear the word “gardening”? Some immediately think of hard work: tilling the soil, pulling the weeds, planting crops, getting your hands dirty. Others consider gardening to be a way to reconnect with nature after a stressful day at work, a way to help feed pollinators, a means to be able to grow what they eat, or an artistic expression of oneself. No matter your answer, we should all have one reason in common: Gardening is fun!
