PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE RECIPE
Why wait until autumn to satisfy your desire for a pumpkin spice latte? This lively combination of heat and cold tolerant annuals means the fun can begin in spring and last all season. Its contrasting colors will pop against your red brick home or neutral-toned siding. Try a matching pair of hanging baskets on the front porch or plant the recipe in a pretty container to dress up your deck.
Truly one of the most fantastic nemesias to come around in many years, this robust variety grows beautifully from spring through fall. Look closely to see how its intricate blossoms are painted in spectacular sunset hues. Isn't nature amazing?
Forming the base of this container recipe is the fully mounded and trailing Supertunia Latte, one of the most distinctive and elegant petunias you'll ever lay eyes on. Its near-black markings on ivory white petals are drawn out by the rich jewel tones of the Superbena.
Umbrellas of royal purple blossoms dance among its companions in this recipe, transforming it into a cornucopia of juicy oranges, bold purples and soothing whites. Strong disease resistance and no need for deadheading are welcome bonuses. This long-lasting combination grows beautifully in hanging baskets and upright containers.

Tip For Success:
When should you water? For containers, it’s best to soak them once a day, maybe twice in extreme heat. Landscape plants that are surrounded by mulch require about an inch of water each week. For both, water in the morning and near the roots rather than directly over the foliage of the plants.
*This recipe assumes that 4.5" plants are being used. To make the recipe work using larger plants, you will need to choose a pot that is larger than our suggested size or use fewer plants of each variety in the recipe.
