Our Creek Side Grown Fresh Summer loving, heat tolerant, bloom all summer annual flowers in big 6” pots are bursting with color and ready to fill that empty space on your patio. These particular summer annuals have been chosen for this time of the year for a variety of reasons.
Why Big Summer Color?
Number one, they are bright and colorful. Number two, they are heat tolerant. They thrive in our Colorado summer weather and just get bigger and even more colorful as the season goes by. Number three, they are grown in a little larger pot so that they will not dry out quite as quickly as the smaller pots. Plus Creek Side uses ProMix potting soil that will hold more water. Regular watering is still required but all these factors make them just a little easier to care for.
Because the pots are a little larger, they can be used in a small decorative container all by themselves as the perfect colorful accent on a table or shelf. Or, just like the 6” 3-in-1 combo pots we discussed last week, plant 2 or more pots together in a large container for a big beautiful flower combination that will create “Instant Color” for your special event or just for fun.
The summer loving varieties include: lantana, cleome, salvia, zinnia, celosia, cuphea, dahlia and tecomaria representing a wide variety of colors and growth habits. Stop by to check them out!
The Green Team is in the process of planting perennial crops for next season. Did you know that we plant the larger pots of perennials in the summer from small starter plants? Then we grow them through the summer and fall seasons, get them ready for winter, tuck them in and put them to bed for the winter. Un-tuck them the following spring, get them growing and make them beautiful for you that next spring and summer season? Yes, we carefully nurture those plants for a full year so that they are absolutely the very best plants they can be for our Creek Side customers! That is the Grown Fresh difference that Creek Side Gardens has to offer. If you are interested, ask us for a tour of the summer production greenhouses. We’ll show you how it’s done!
