Summer sun can be brutally strong in some climates, and it’s not for the faint of heart. These new heat tolerant annuals not only survive in the heat, they thrive in it. They produce more flowers on larger plants as the temperatures rise, making them ideal for growing in warm climates and places with hot summers.

At Proven Winners, we offer a vast array of annuals including great foliage plants.  While flowers are always in demand, we sometimes overlook the interest that foliage plants can bring to a garden.  Not only is colorful foliage available, but the texture these plants provide can add drama and depth to your plantings. Not to mention, you will be absolutely amazed by the beautiful garden performance they deliver from spring into fall.  

Introducing the 2017 Annual of the Year: Supertunia® Vista Bubblegum®! In our inaugural year of the National Plant of the Year program, this iconic Supertunia was the obvious choice to represent the very best in our line of flowering annuals.

Gardens can sometimes start to look a bit tired as summer moves into it's final phases and fall arrives.  Utilizing plants that bloom, develop brightly colored fruit or have great foliage color in later summer and fall is a great way to keep your garden looking fresh.
