Fuchsia's dainty, dangling, blossoms are heat tolerant and can be perennials if you live along the Pacific coast.

It grows to a height of approx. 12 inches tall; making a great centerpiece for a container.

Sweet Potato Vines add shades of green or even purple to your container. Their vining tendencies take your container outside the ‘box' - literally.

Pansies love cool, spring weather. They will bloom into summer, but only in the full shade and if moist, but not too wet.

Coleus adds its own element of unique foliage. It grows up and out. Pinching the tops off allows you to control its growth and shape.

Calibrachoa is easy to grow and easy to care for. It blooms continually; filling your container with dozens of small but brilliant blooms.

Calibrachoa is self-cleaning. No deadheading necessary. They thrive in partial to full sun and don't mind the hot, dry summer climate.
