Calibrachoa Superbells ‘Blackberry Punch’.


Calibrachoa Superbells ‘Blackberry Punch’. Whether you choose the lush ‘Blackberry Punch’, with its brilliant fuchsia outlining deep purple centres, or ‘Frostfire’, a stun- ning white bloom with yellow bursts accented with red, these calibrachoa varieties are strong performers. They are ideal for hanging baskets or as a filler in containers or window boxes. Height six to ten inches, and width eight to ten inches. Full sun.


Cosmos ‘Candy Stripe’. Every flower is different! White blooms tinted with a crimson picotee edge and bold yellow centres that will attract butterflies and birds. Height 3 feet.


Dahlia ‘Go Go Purple’. Dark purple blooms with pink spots and splotches and lush foliage on compact bushes. Growing to a height of 1.5 feet the mini-dinnerplates are vigorous and fast-growing dahlias. Their strong stems require no staking. Plants are self-branching and require no pinching to produce four to six inch flowers. They bloom mid-summer to first frost. Other colours include the ‘Go Go Speckled Pink’ (light pink rounded blooms speckled with rose-red spots and splotches) and ‘Go Go Peach’ (rich speckled peach tones).


Dinnerplate dahlia ‘Mom's Special’. Massive dinner- plate-size white blooms streaked with soft lavender. Perfect for cut flowers or making a statement. Other dinnerplate varieties include ‘Manhattan Island’, which sports red blooms with a hint of yellow at their centre, and ‘Santa Claus’, which is striped with red and white. Dinnerplate dahlias do require special staking. Height three feet tall. Sun or part shade.


Euphorbia ‘Diamond Delight’. The most vigorous double-flowering euphorbia on the market this year. To further delight gardeners this abundantly flowering plant looks great in containers or as a landscape plant. In addition to its tolerance for extreme heat, humidity and drought this variety is well branched and grows in a small mounding habit. Height, 10 to 12 inches with a similar spread. Full to part sun.


Geraniums ‘Mint Chocolate’. New last year, these stun- ners with their chocolate-coloured leaves develop a mint green edge as they mature. Even more irresistible is their minty fragrance. Available in ‘Candy’ (pink blooms) or ‘Cherry’ (vibrant red blooms), they are perfect for sunny borders and flower beds. They prefer part shade and grow 16 to 20 inches high.
