Annuals

Bougainvilla Standard

Bougainvilla StandardLatin Name: Bougainvilla
Height: Over 30 ft.
Width: 10 ft. to 15 ft.
Light: Full sun to part shade
Water: Average
Soil: Well Drained
Description: Fantastic plant and  bloomer if you live within its hardy range.  The hotter the better for this monster bloomer, that literally flowers all year round.  Love of this plant go so far as to people purchasing it knowing it has little chance of making it through their cooler winters.  So it can work as an annual, but you would never get to see it in its full glory as it gains size and color.  It can survive nicely if offered some protection and heat…like being planted right up against a house.

Dichondra Silver Falls

Dichondra Silver Falls Latin Name: Dichondra argentea
Height: 0.00 to 0.25 feet
Width: 3.00 to 4.00 feet
Light: Full sun
Water: Average
Soil: Well Drained
Description: This striking new trailing annual gives you a fresh, new way to work in elegant silver foliage into your container and other plantings. Perfect in a hanging basket, window box, or other container, this plant can trail up to 6 feet with showy, soft foliage like no other. Native to areas of the Southwest, it’s also very heat- and drought-tolerant so you can count on it to look good all season long, even if it wilts a few times.It’s a perennial in the very warmest parts of the U.S. but is treated like an annual elsewhere. It needs well-drained soil (another reason it’s great for containers), so be careful to avoid wet spots if you’re planting it directly in the ground.
