Patriotic Flowers

Having a July 4th bbq this weekend? Grab an affordable assortment of red, white and blue annuals you can easily find at your local garden center, greenhouse or nursery and assemble a quick container garden to display your American pride.

Here’s a short color guide:

  • Red – petunias, zinnias, Lantana ‘Patriot Cherry’, Salvia
  • White – petunias, zinnias, Bacopa ‘Snowstorm’, Angelonia ‘Angelface White’, Globe Amaranth, Dusty Miller
  • Blue – there are not too many true blue flowers, so you may substitute dark purple flowers such as petunias, Salvia ‘Victoria Blue’, Verbena

Remember to water your container gardens often. They dry out fairly quickly in our North Texas heat. Need advice? Call Captain Ron’s Lawns & Landscaping or request an estimate.
