I'd like to grow annuals from seed this year for my full/partial sun container gardens. I would like to use a blue and orange combination. Can you recommend any flowers/plants in this color grouping that would work well together? I am fairly new at gardening so easy care would be a plus.

You might try blue ageratum or blue salvia or blue lobelia along with tiny orange marigolds, short orange snapdragons, zinnias, or nasturtiums. Remember that container plants need ample water and regular fertilizing to do their best.
