RED:

 

Celosia (cockscomb) Fresh Look Red

For an upright flower with great texture, the central plume can grow up the 9 inches tall and looks great in a fresh floral arrangement or dried as an everlasting bouquet. They prefer full sun.

 

Butterfly Red Pentas

These Egyptian Starflowers love the heat and will be visited by butterflies and hummingbirds. You’ll enjoy this Vinca alternative for the beautiful cluster of star shaped flowers against bright green foliage.

 

Petunia ‘Dreams Red Picotee’

There’s not a better flower for the holiday than this red flower with white edges. Like most Petunias, they enjoy full to part sun and will last from early spring to late fall.

 

WHITE:

Dusty Miller ‘Silver Dust’

This white foliage can be used as an accent or border piece in your flower display. It is very heat and drought tolerant and can eventually grow yellow flowers.

 

Angelonia ‘Serena White”

Angelonia comes in hues of purple and white and are stunning displays of orchid-like flowers. They take well to the heat and look lush in a container flower display.

 

Dianthus ‘Floral Lace White’

Use this wispy, white accent in full or part sun and will actually survive throughout the winter next to your pansies and open up again in the spring.

 

BLUE:

True blues are hard to find. Typically they are purple-blue.

Ageratum ‘Hawaii Blue’

This easy to grow plant takes well to full sun or partial shade and have lots of fluffy flowers all season long.

Blue Bacopa

If you’re looking for a trailing annual this is a great one with its heart shaped foliage. Try them as a low grower in your containers, hanging baskets and window boxes.

Evolvulus ‘Blue Daze’

These blue flowers are in the morning glory family and enjoy the heat. It looks almost like a shrub so it can be mounded in a planter box alone. Interestingly, each flower lasts only one day and opens in the morning and closes at night, but the plant itself blooms almost continuously.
