Product Details

The reddish purple Salvia flowers will attract hummingbirds and other pollinators to this creative collection, while the dark maroon and green Coleus foliage adds texture and flair. Euphorbia provides a delicate accent with its airy branches and continuous supply of small white flowers. Two each of the Coleus and Euphorbia, 1 of the Salvia. 5 plants total. Container not included.

  • Salvia Love and Wishes (PPAF)
  • Coleus Flame Thrower™ Chipotle (PPAF)

Some plants require more space in container gardens than others. To accommodate the 4 plants in this collection, we recommend a container at least 15½″ in diameter and 6″ deep.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

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.

WHEN WE SHIP

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.

OUR GUARANTEE

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.

Wonderful Collection!

A viewer from Nevada City, Ca.

I'm very happy with this beautiful, two toned collection. I have it in a container next to another container with the Savannah collection in it, and the two collections play off one another on my deck. I find them both enchanting! The plants arrived healthy , though the Coleus bit the dust when we had a drop in temperatures that killed it off just after I planted. I ordered two replacements and saved their spot in the pot until the danger of frost had passed. Enough time has passed since I planted and they have all grown wonderfully and knitted together very attractively. After enjoying them for a while now, I'm rather happy to have ordered this collection and can say that I would do so again.

disappointed....

Deborah M. from Cambridge MA

I am a fairly diligent and caring gardner...with many many potted plants and planted arrangements I do myself. The past few years I have ordered a couple from WF. This year was the worst. The Salvia is the only thing that has grown. The coleus is pretty much dead and the Euphorbia is anemic at best. I was rebated for one coleus that died after a week...but the other is now on its last breath. Everything else on my deck is thriving...Its gets great sun...and watered every day...

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.
