The Q&A Archives: Suggestions For Container Flowers

Question: I am trying to start a windowbox container. I live in middle Georgia and the flowers would be in partial sun/shade. Any suggestions for flowers that would be easy to start and take care of?

Answer: I am assuming you want annuals? I will stick with shorter varieties (not exceeding 12-18" in height). Try some of these, all available from Burpee: Dwarf Border Mix Aster, Alyssum, Begonia, Browallia, Campanula, Candytuft, Dusty Miller, Forget Me Not, Gazania, Heliotrope, Hypoestes, Impatiens, Lobelia, Nolana, Torenia, Viola. If you are interested in these you can contact Burpee at 1-800-888-1447 or, revisit the website.
