I have a pink rose bush I planted into a large planter pot so I wanted some color echoes in pink so here is what I purchased. Also got a Hosta and a Clematis. (Nelly Moser) Green Grin!

Looks like you will have a nice combination of pinks. Vinca are one of my favorite annuals. Post a pic of when you have it all together.

If you'd like a coral/pink petunia with a lovely scent, ask if they have Easy Wave™ Rosy Dawn. The smell alone got me on this one! Lovey dubby

Nice selection. I planted some vinca that looked very much like those today. I use them to fill in holes around the edges of my perennials.

I picked these up at a local feed and seed. I do love coral pink, so I will keep an eye out for them. Thank You!

I use to plant dozens of these every year, one year I bought a purple one just for fun, it was beautiful! I love these and they do reseed but the volunteers do not bloom till the following September so that is too long to wait for a flower. LOL.

I didn't even need to leave home today to get some new plants. The last of my 2 mail order plants arrived.

Lazy SS Ranch never fails to send great plants. Not cheap with the shipping, so I usual order things I don't expect to find locally. After sending the order, I did find a Sweet Summer Love clematis nearby.

The plants I ordered besides the SSL clematis are Pink Mink Clematis also called Krakowiak, Chrysanthemum X rubellum 'Will's Wonderful' and Hydrangea anomat subsp petiolaris 'Firefly'


Also got a big box of annuals from Mischel's Greenhouse. Nice too.
