Flowering Annuals

Make a Wish

If you wish for a beautiful flower for containers or hanging baskets one of my favorite annual flowers is Wishbone flower or Torenia. The flower is called “Wishbone” flower because the two fused stamens inside the flower look just like the wishbone from the Thanksgiving turkey.

Two other flowering annuals that I love and are very tough………easy to grow and stand up to hot summer weather are Melampodium or Medallion flower and Gomphrena or Globe Amaranth……..two top performers and tough guys!
