I am going to do a whiskey barrel with a red determinate tomato in the center and red & white striped zinnias and some herbs around the perimeter. Does anyone have a suggestion for some type of "filler" flower that is blue (not purple)? Thanks!
I've liked Lobelia--there are several nice true blues. The short varieties of annual larkspur can be found in single color packs in blue. You used to be able to find some nice blue ageratum sold as bedding plants in the spring. I think I've seen packs of single color linaria sold online--want to say the line was called Fantasy "Blue"--it was available as a mix or in individual colors. Love linaria--they're delicate and look like teensy snapdragons.
Great ideas . . . I'll see what I can find locally. I know I'm going to want everything I can find! Running out of time. I have the rest of the stuff in already. After I'm finished, I'll post a pic. Thanks everyone!
