Loves heat, loves humidity, and blooms for months!

Trailing Lobelia, mounding Petunia, and clustering Verbena combine for unbeatable color!
If you're looking for hot, bright color in containers that stand up to summer's worst heat and humidity, Night in Pompeii is exactly the combination you want. The 6 plants in this collection (2 each of Lobelia Techno Heat™ Dark Blue, Petunia Sanguna® Purple, and Verbena Lanai® Bright Eye) work together to create the perfect mix of color, texture, and beautiful form.

Night in Pompeii regales you with the huge, color-drenched blooms of the Petunia, interspersed with smaller, rounded nosegays of bright pink-and-white Verbena and long, elegant trails of true-blue Lobelia. The hues are all vibrant and the flower power nonstop on these heat- and humidity lovers!

Expect the blooms to begin in late spring or early summer and to continue through summer and into autumn in most climates. These plants make excellent companions in tall flowerpots, hanging baskets, and windowboxes. Of course, they are also ideal for the annual bed! When used in containers, they easily fill an 18-inch pot or standard windowbox. Individually, they are even larger: the petunia is a foot high and 2 feet wide, while the Lobelia is 6 to 10 inches high and 18 to 22 inches wide and the Verbena is 10 inches high and up to 19 inches wide. Planted together, they intermingle and fill the available space with blooms and fresh green foliage.

Night in Pompeii is very easy to care for as well. Give it plenty of water and food throughout the season, and these workhorses will do the rest! Lobelia Techno Heat™ is an Award of Garden Merit winner, so you know its performance will be stellar. The Petunia and Verbena are among the most popular for American gardens, always turning in more blooms and a longer season than expected. You'll love this combo in any sunny spot! Pack of 6 plants.
