Product Details

Product Details

We love this fusion of colorful blossoms, created by combining some of the most floriferous and high performance annuals we know. Cherry-red Zinnia and sunrise-hued Lantana provide a perpetual fountain of flowers amidst the dark purple spiky foliage of Tradescantia. Adding vertical interest are the bicolored purple-and-white flower spikes of Angelonia. 5 plants total, quantities listed in parentheses below.

  • Zinnia Double Zahara® Cherry (1)
  • Lantana Landmark™ Rose Sunrise (PP 19,151) (2)
  • Tradescantia pallida ‘Purple Queen’ (1)
  • Angelonia angustifolia Angelface® Wedgwood Blue (PP 19,696) (1)

Some plants require more space in container gardens than others. To accommodate the 5 plants in this collection, we recommend a container at least 17″ in diameter and 6″ deep.

This collection is shown in our sand-colored Trevi Urn, which is sold separately. Click here to order.

Shipping

Shipping
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: WASHINGTON, NEVADA, TEXAS, OREGON, UTAH.

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.

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.

Disappointed!

A viewer from Woodbury, MN

Received my plants and 3 out of the 5 of the plants were bent/broken and extremely small, I expected the plants to be a bit more robust. I planted them in pots right away to try and salvage, however, one out the five plants died - i'm still trying to nurse the other 4 back to life. I won't order these collections again - the pictures are quite deceiving. By the time these plants get to any normal size, it will be late August.

Fabulous!

A viewer from Nevada City, Ca.

I've read the reviews above and am so sorry that they received less than stellar plants. My experience is very positive: plants arrived healthy and whole, though the zinnia was washed out dramatically at arrival, which I took to be related to the darkness in the shipping boxes. I had the containers already prepped and got the plants into it immediately. It did not take long for the whole shebang to take off and it is absolutely fabulous! Plants are healthy and thriving and full of color. I'm less thrilled with the Angelonia plant choice specifically, simply due to the addition of the white color in that plant which doesn't really work in the combo (I would have gone for a pale yellow color flower, perhaps a calibrachoa, but that would not provide any vertical accent). Regardless, I'm still thrilled with this collection and would absolutely buy it again. I've placed it next to another pre-planned container with colors that are echoed in it.

Disappointing Results

Susan Mieli from Northbrook, IL

The photo in the catalog is what I was expecting; however, that's not what my two planters looked like at all. I'm an experienced gardener for over 50 years, so I know everything was planted correctly. The plants all grew at different rates and never filled in like the photo. The zinnias grew too rapidly, and became much bigger than any of the other plants. The spiderwort, which normally grows like a weed, hardly grew at all the whole summer. The lantana bloomed but was small and the angelonia bloomed quickly but quit blooming before any of the other plants...and never rebloomed even though I snipped off the spent stems. Will not reorder this collection next year. I've always been very pleased with WFF's annual collections, but not this one.

Disappointed- Not worth it

A viewer from NH

What a disappointment! I have bought many container arrangements over the years from White Flower Farm and this year the service and quality of plants is sub-par. This arrangement, the two lantana plants are so small, (truly measured just an inch in width and height) it's going to take all summer for them to mature. The zinnia arrived yellow and shriveled, almost dead, tried to nurse it but it's gone. In another container arrangement that I ordered from White Flower this year, two plants arrived broken and one was unplantable, still nursing the other back. It's sad when I can buy healthier plants at Walmart -

Growing guide

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.
