08 Mar Annual Flowers For Shade: Browallia!
Name: Browallia hybrid named Endless Illumination from Proven Winners
Type of Plant: Short annual for part to full shade.
Why I Love/Hate this plant: This is a purple-blue flowering annual for shade…unusual in itself. But I love it because it is reliable, long-flowering and it plays well with other plants in containers or in the garden.
A Word to the Wise: The Proven Winners plant experts advise people not to over-fertilize. This is an annual that does just fine with an early-summer dose of fertilizer and then holding off after that first application.
