Grand Traverse Recipe
What happens when you combine three of our best Supertunia petunias? You get perfection with a cherry on top! Hang a matching pair of these vibrant hanging baskets from your front porch to make a striking streetside impression or grow a robust patio container overflowing with pinks, reds and purples. Its warm tones are perfect for creating a rosy, upbeat impression.
Not into pink? Our Irresistible recipe is an ideal alternative. Set the color theme for your garden in spring with the cool yellows, juicy oranges and deep purples of this kaleidoscopic combination. Northerners have grown cool weather tolerant lobelias and nemesias for years, but now warm weather gardeners can enjoy them too with the increased heat tolerance of these newer cultivars.

Covered head to toe in luxurious shades of purple, our monochromatic Sparkle and Glow recipe will blend easily into any color palette you choose this year, from rich jewel tones to calming neutrals and everything in between. Though each blossom offers unique color patterns that you’ll appreciate up close, this recipe is equally impressive when viewed from a distance.
