Island Life Combination

Island Life Combination

Complementary Colors that Just Won't Quit!

For all of us who love the combination of orange and blue and can never find it in a ready-made planting, Island Life has arrived to charm and beguile! This combination of 9 plants (3 per 4-inch pot) delivers the striking beauty of Calibrachoa Aloha® Kona Mango and Scaevola Surdiva® Light Blue. The plants are sun-loving, super-tough, and long-blooming. These annuals offer tropical, relaxed color that looks great everywhere!

Each pot contains 2 Calibrachoa and 1 Scaevola, for the perfect blend of soft color. These two annuals will compete to flower first, and possibly they will start together before spring is out: Calibrachoa with its richly colored, wide-open trumpet shaped blooms are irresistible to hummingbirds, and Scaevola with its cheerful nosegay of fans, fluttery and flat. Both are just 6 to 10 inches high but spread (or trail, depending on how you use them) very generously. They keep setting new flowers from the center as well as from the ends of the stems, so even in August you have a mounded display instead of a flat-topped, "empty center" combo.

And heat, humidity, drought, wind, rain -- none of these really bother Island Life. These plants are self-cleaning, which is good because they each set hundreds upon hundreds of blooms over their long season, and you'd never want to deadhead them! Just sweep up the neatly fallen blooms every now and again, give the plants plenty of food and water whenever you can, and your work is done!

Use just 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. Pack of three 4-inch pots (3 plants in all).
