If you love color, then this display is perfect for you! It's like a little land mine of flowers that explodes with pretty hues.

Starting with Cordyline, the "haircut" of your display. This spiky, palm-like plant gives a dramatic vertical element and offsets the color of the flowers with some background solidity.

Next we come to the color! Gazania will produce daisy-like flowers of all kinds of colors. Why not try experimenting with displays of single color Gazania, or a random mix of colors if you love a more chaotic look?

The tiny, Forget-Me-Not sized flowers are the Verbena. These come in all kinds of colors, and are a riot of life! Really pretty and fun to plant in your displays.

Salvia come in stunning blue or red, an unusually dark flower that is like a tiny Foxglove. They counterbalance the more outrageous flowers in the display with a little quiet elegance.

Blueish purple flowers and predictable, Vinca Minor help to anchor all the other colored flowers with a simple, yet very pretty, look.

Finally, the Calibrachoa, which come in either a mix of colors, or a set type. We particularly like this Peach Evolution Calibrachoa, which looks good enough to eat!
