I think in our social media world it’s much easier to look at someone else and say “I wish…” or “I’m so glad I’m not…”. The comparisons don’t really matter, though. What really matters is what’s inside, just like the center of this flower and its stamen. The flower would not survive or be the same without it, just as we are who we are from the inside out, not what we share on social media. So, let’s stop the comparisons and focus on being the best version of ourselves.
points of interest
This petunia-like flower has striking, tangerine-orange petals with a deep burgundy eye and yellow throat. Abundant and blooming all season, this plant has a cascading habit and requires little maintenance. Perfect for hanging baskets and patio planters.
Site planter in full sun or partial shade. Avoid constantly damp soil. While not necessary to deadhead, giving a slight trim in late July/August will increase branching and freshen growth. Fertilize on a regular basis or use slow release fertilizer in spring for best performance.
