Begonias have been around for years and for good reason.

They are easy to grow, provide thick, lush foliage as well as colorful blooms and have a tendency to clean themselves, rather than needing to be deadheaded.

Begonias can be controlled by pinching their tops to make them fuller.

What you pinch off can be propagated in soil or water for new plants.

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.

Geraniums are an excellent choice for containers. They add lush foliage, colorful flower heads that add height to the display and are tolerant of most weather conditions.

The only thing they don't like is to be too wet. Be sure to deadhead to keep the blooms coming.
