Royal Gold™ Combination

Royal Gold™ Combination


The annual plant combo goes designer with this elegant, restrained mix of three varieties that work together to highlight their merits. Petunia Sanguna® Burgundy, Bidens Mexican Gold™ Improved, and Scaevola Bombay® White Improved offer very different bloom colors, sizes, and forms, yet together they are a beautifully integrated whole, backed by lush foliage that makes the flowers look like a bouquet!

Petunia Sanguna® is the standout bloom, velvety burgundy-maroon and fully 3 inches wide. These dark flowers seem to radiate rich color, standing out brilliantly against the forest-green foliage. Sanguna® reaches just 6 to 12 inches high, but spreads up to 15 inches, meandering among the other two plants beautifully to integrate its habit with their own. Expect the flowers to arise in waves from late spring through summer and into fall!

Bidens Mexican Gold™ Improved is the spotlight of warm gold that makes Sanguna® such a rich shade of purple. These daisies are just an inch or so across, but they arise by the hundred on semi-trailing plants 12 to 14 inches high and up to 16 inches wide. The needle-like foliage contrasts nicely with the Petunia and Scaevola, while the brilliant rayed flowers are long-lasting and intense, miniature suns casting their glow over the whole!

Finally, Scaevola Bombay® White Improved mixes and mingles with the Petunia and Bidens to toss out little nosegays of pure white. These circlets of blooms just make the burgundy and gold stand out more brilliantly, while the spreading habit (6 to 10 inches high, 14 to 18 inches wide) fills in every available space in the basket, windowbox, or planter.

Best of all, these three plants get along perfectly. They all like it hot, and although they will grow and bloom best with regular watering and feeding, they don't mind a touch of drought. Wind, rain, humidity -- no problem for Royal Gold™! This is a combination planting to treasure, and look forward to growing again next summer, too.

We have set one plant of each type into every 4-inch pot, so the Petunia, Bidens, and Scaevola grow up and through one another, creating a "pre-mixed" combination of colors and forms you will love. You only need 1 pot per 6-inch flowerpot. Use 2 pots for an 8- to 10-inch pot or basket, and all 3 for a 12-inch or larger container.

When your 3-pack of plants arrives, remove all the packaging material and set the plants outdoors in a shaded, sheltered spot. Water them thoroughly, and let them rest there for a day or two. They will then be ready to transplant into their final home! Pack of three 4-inch pots (9 plants in all).
