Product Details

Plenty of pink, coral, and red shades here, which will catch the attention of hummingbirds and draw them in for further inspection. Their sweet reward lies within the blooms of Fuchsia 'Billy Green.'  2 plants of the Begonia, 1 each of the other varieties. 6 plants total. Exclusive. Container not included.

  • Begonia Dragon Wing® Pink
  • Fuchsia 'Billy Green'
  • Coleus Campfire (PP 27,269)

Some plants require more space in container gardens than others. To accommodate the 6 plants in this collection, we recommend a container at least 18″ 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. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at 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.

The hummingbirds love it!

A viewer from Durham, CT

I have bought this collection every year for at least five years. No matter how small the plants when they arrive, they always mature into the beautiful collection you see in the picture. And the hummingbirds really do love them! They zip from my feeder to the planter while I sit and watch them.

Hummingbird collection

A viewer from Winsted, CT

I gave this collection to my niece as part of her Christmas present. She sent me pictures, both when it arrived and when it was in full bloom. It looked just like the picture in the ad and she said she had more hummingbirds come to this one pot than she'd ever had at any of her other plants and feeders. She said it was one of the best presents she'd ever gotten.

Even better than expected

A viewer from NJ

I noticed the need for a container so was entirely prepared when the plants arrived. I planted them up and didn't expect all that much but was amazed at how swiftly they grew! By the end of the season the vine was starting to devour my porch (next year I'll put it somewhere that it can creep a little more!) and the fuchsias are only now dead after a couple of hard freezes. It grew to at least three feet in diameter (possibly four?!) and was incredible. It bounces back quickly after being watered if I forget and it starts drooping a little and the plants thrived and bloomed/grew profusely.

I never saw any hummingbirds but I think our neighborhood is pretty poor in terms of attracting them, so will simply have to put in more options (and a real feeder) next spring. I live in hope! I definitely intend to buy this package again in the spring.

Glorious as it is every year except the fuscias -again

A viewer from MA

I love this collection because it starts out attractively and only gets more glorious as the season progresses, so I have ordered it for several years. My only complaint, is that the fuscias do not perform well in my garden. They produce only a few diminutive blooms that get lost in the rest of the collection. I would love it if they were as beautiful as in the photo, but not for me. Also, in my garden, while pollinators in general loved this collection, the hummingbirds left it alone, preferring the salvias and mina lobata I have throughout the garden

Growing guide

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.
