Product Details

Our Foliage with Flair Annual Collection is a zesty recipe for partial shade featuring a dynamic blend of complementary colors (opposites on the color wheel) and contrasting forms and textures. Big-leaved Caladium and ruffled Coleus both provide variegated foliage. Ipomoea and Asparagus densiflorus contribute lime-green leaves in varying textures. The Begonia links all the players with extravagant crimson blooms and burnished foliage. 6 plants total, quantities of each plant listed in parentheses below. Container not included.

  • Caladium 'Freida Hemple' (1)
  • Coleus 'Pineapple Beauty' (1)
  • Ipomoea batatas SolarPower™ Lime Heart (1)
  • Asparagus densiflorus 'Sprengeri' (1)
  • Begonia Big® Red Bronze Leaf (2)

Some plants require more space in container gardens than others. To accommodate the 6 plants in this collection, we recommend a container at least 12″ in diameter and 12″ deep.

Every state has agricultural regulations that restrict the shipment of certain plants. We're sorry, but we cannot ship this item to the following states: Arizona, Arkansas, Alabama.


The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Looks promising

Plants arrived in good shape. The combination of colors and textures is pretty. I've had them in their container for a week and they're beginning to grow and look lively

A sure wnner

I purchased this collection for the first time this year. I planted two containers of this collection on each side of my front door entry. They have become my favorite, so colorful, vibrant and hearty. It made my entryway so welcoming. I will purchase them again next year, not only for my entryway, but for other areas as well. A must to have!!!!

Planted in an old boiler and looks great! Do not have access to the different plants in remote areas. Two of the plants did not survive the shipping, but were quickly replaced by White Flower Farm.

You could put one of these on each side of entry. Very full and continuous blooming.

Dramatic Front Entrance

I was hesitant about this because I don't like variegated plants, but this looks great. I exchanged the sweet potato plant for a Margarita sweet potato. Thought it needed the larger leaf. Now I have leaves trailing all the way down my front stoop.

Choosing a pot and growing mix: In addition to our Annual Collections, most of the plants we offer can be grown, either singly or in combination, in containers. Any container with a drainage hole in the bottom will suit. The growing medium in containers must drain much more quickly than garden soil.

Planting: Begin by adding potting mix to the container until the container is about 3/4 full. (If you use a dry, peat-moss-based mix, you must first moisten it by placing it in a plastic tub or a wheelbarrow and slowly adding water until the mix is moist but not soggy.) Next, set the plants on the mix one by one, spacing them much more closely than you would when planting them in the ground. Put the tallest plants in the center of the container. Surround them with the shorter, mounding plants, and put trailing plants along the edge. When you are pleased with your arrangement, add potting mix to bring the level to within an inch or so of the container's rim and firm lightly. Finally, water thoroughly.

Container care: Plants in containers need special care. They dry out more quickly than plants in the ground; in the heat of summer, you may have to water them daily. Because of the need for frequent watering, nutrients soon wash out the bottom of the pot. To keep annuals growing and flowering, we suggest you water with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer mixed as directed, every other week in summer. (Other plants—bulbs, perennials, and shrubs—need less fertilizer; a half-strength solution applied once a month through August is enough.) Our Vermont Compost Plus is a mix of 10 ingredients, organic and mineral, that will revitalize last year's potting soil and slowly release nutrients throughout the season. All-Bloom Fertilizer is a 15-30-15 product that can be diluted in water and applied regularly during the growing season. Finally, to look their best, all plants in containers need regular grooming. Remove spent flowers regularly and prune vigorous growers to keep them in check.

Preparing for winter: In climates where winter temperatures drop well below freezing, containers should generally be dismantled in fall. Bring tender plants indoors or toss them on the compost heap; plant hardy bulbs, perennials, and shrubs in the ground. Most containers should be emptied of potting mix and stored under cover; only plastic and fiberglass pots can be left out over winter without cracking. In mild-winter climates—say, Zone 8 (10°F) and warmer—hardy plants can generally be left outdoors in containers with little risk either to the plants or to the pots.
