You can put Supertunias in containers, baskets or in your beds around shrubs for extra pizzazz this summer. Honestly, with the colors in the Supertunia palette, you’ll smile whenever you take a look at these happy faces. Likes sun. (pictured: ‘Pretty Much Picasso’ from Proven Winners)
‘Rozanne’ Season Long Perennial Geranium
‘Rozanne’ really needs a name change. Call her Reliable Rozanne. Staying compact and true to form is her forte, along with producing beautiful violet-blue flowers repeatedly throughout the season. One shearing in mid-summer will be appreciated by Rozanne, then she’s on her own until fall. Not many perennials can claim that!
Rozanne’s leaves turn a beautiful bronzy red in the fall, so she’s still pretty to look at.
She’s disease resistant, loves to naturalize an area, but is easy to contain if need be. Likes full sun to partial shade. Will not disappoint!

‘Happy Returns’ Reblooming Perennial Daylily
The reblooming lilies have the distinct advantage of charming us all season. Daylilies are supremely forgiving, doing fabulously with care, but not letting on if you’ve been ignoring them. They fill in quickly, so making a border or bed can be accomplished without using up much of your time or patience.
‘Happy Returns’ has ruffled edges and lemon yellow flowers. ‘Happy’ has some relatives too; ‘Rosy’ (ruffled edges, deep rose with yellow center), ‘Stephanie’ (ruffled edges, light pink flower with mauve, purple and yellow center), ‘Red Hot’ (ruffled edges, red with yellow center) and ‘Dynamite’ (ruffled edges, deep pink flower). Follow this link to take a look at some ‘Returns’.
