Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

We are so excited to be introducing such a beautiful plant as our first new annual. An all summer, shockingly beautiful combination, Cosmic Flare will brighten any border or container with its stunning foliage and flower color. Selected by Landcraft Environments in Long Island, NY, this annual is sure to please even the pickiest gardener.  Use it directly in the ground or in containers for a punch of WOW in any border.  It is as happy in a pot as it is planted in the soil, and it will provide months of chartreuse foliage and magenta blooms.  For a more tropical effect, use Cosmic Flare in a large container with Musa basjoo or other large leaved tropicals.  The textural combination will be stunning.
