Geraniums are classic. Their flowers come in a variety of colors and even shapes.

When dead-headed, geraniums will bloom from spring till heavy frost.

Geraniums don't tolerate soggy soil and do well in partial to full sun.

Petunias that vine are more delicately stemmed than traditional petunias. Their blooms are also much smaller; making them excellent ‘bottom covers' for container gardens.

Dead-head petunias for continual blooming even through the first few frosts of fall.
Traditional petunias require the same care (dead-heading and minimal moisture) as the vining varieties. Because they come in so many different colors, the petunia is as much a staple of container gardening as the pot itself.

Lobelia is easy to grow, comes in different colors and thrives in both sunny and shady conditions. Lobelia is also anxious to leave its mark by reseeding itself year after year. This alone is enough to make it a gardener's favorite.
