Checking in on my Proven Winners plants, Supertunia in Burgundy and Mojave Tangerine Portulaca.
Do you remember back in April when I excitedly posted photos of all my new Proven Winners plants that had just arrived? I thought you might like an update on a couple of them! I can not begin to say enough good things about the Supertunia Picasso in Burgundy. It is so new, that I can't link to it on their website, but you can check out the Picasso in Pink. This is the most profuse petunia that I have ever grown and I have planted a lot of the petunias! The blossoms are smaller than the usual petunias that I plant and I love this! It makes the plant look like it is simply covered in blooms - which it is! The blossoms are deep purple and rimmed in green. I planted them in two planters hanging off of my porch and they are just gorgeous!
Next to them, I planted Mojave Tangerine Portulaca. This is a smaller more compact plant that is heat and drought tolerant. I love it's small fleshy leaves and soft tangerine flowers. It pairs beautifully with the purple from the supertunias. Sometimes I love mixing colors from opposite sides of the color wheel, they just seem to bring out the vibrancy in each other.
