Coral pink gives continuity to this combination of annuals for full sun.

This basket, perfect for a sunny porch or patio showcases a combination of bright, coral pink petunia.

A "wave" type petunia is perfect for a hanging container, since they spread and drape down, giving the basket a round, full look.

They have a long bloom period, they are more self-cleaning than other types and they are somewhat more resistant to rain than traditional varieties.

Such a bright color becomes even showier by adding touches of white to the combination. In this case, white lobelia and white annual phlox.

Annual phlox (phlox drumondii) has trumpet shaped flowers borne in clusters. Try to keep phlox leaves dry, as they are somewhat prone to disease. Phlox performs better in cooler temperatures.

Touches of yellow and its complimentary color, purple, add zing to the combination. Marigold is one of the easiest annuals to grow. It is not really bothered by disease or pests, aside from spider mites.

Purple and bicolored pansies fill the rest of this combination.
