Gardens on Parade: Patriotic Plants


Over the past several months, symbols of national patriotism have been displayed all around. This year there were more patriotic displays than ever before celebrating Fourth of July. With the gardening season also at its peak red white and blue garden designs are popping up everywhere as well.


While color is important when designing your own patriotic garden don’t forget plant performance. Choose plants that thrive in a variety of conditions for a patriotic theme that will look as great in the heat of July. Proven Winners plant propagators known for reliable performance offer an array of red white and blue flowering plants. The plants in our spring collection will continue to perform beautifully through fall with very little maintenance”“ says Marshall Dirks marketing director for Proven Winners. We have varieties with upright compact or even trailing growth habits giving gardeners virtually unlimited design options.


Popular plants for red white and blue gardens include ”Million Bells” Trailing Blue and Trailing White “Bacopa Snowstorm” and “Torenia Summer Wave, Blue”. For true reds you can’t beat verbena. Proven Winners offers early-blooming “Temari”, “Tapien”, and “Tukana” verbena hybrids bred for mildew resistance and heavy flowering. Other good choices include the top-selling “Supertunia” line.        Patriotic plant designs can be created on a large or small scale. A sunny slope invites a full-blown replica of the American flag created with masses of    flowers. Window boxes brimming with red white and blue flowering combinations are perfect for a uniquely patriotic expression.
