The Q&A Archives: Appropriate Flowers for Window Box

Question: Please suggest annual flowers for large window boxes attached to my home. The boxes have southern exposure and automatic watering. Scaveola Blue Wonder worked nicely. I would like to add similar flowers in yellows, oranges and pinks?

Answer: You have lots and lots of choices! How about petunias, nasturtium, celosia, miniature sunflowers, heliotrope (purple), geraniums (including ivy-leaf types), portulaca, or small zinnias like the pinwheel series. You might also include some herbs like sage, purple basil, or lavender. Hope this gives you some ideas!
