Flower Power

by Sarah Lange for M Magazine


Spring is in the air and we're in M: Milwaukee's Lifestyle Magazine ... check out this article featuring flower recommendations by our own Kurt Bartel ...


1. Profusion zinnias
Drought, resistant so they don't need to be watered daily; you can buy in multiple colors, including pinks, reds, yellows and oranges.

2.  Coleus
The leaves of these plants come in a variety of shapes and colors, including pinks, reds, oranges, yellows and greens; they're also tough. (Wasabi, a green variety, should be popular this year.)

3.  Sun Patiens
A colorful, hardier version of impatiens, some varieties of which have succumbed to disease is years past.

4. Supertunias
Unlike regular petunias, these do not need to be deadheaded; they're available in pinks, purples, whites, reds and blues.

5. Sweet potato vine
These spillers grow very well in our climate. Available in purple or Margarita, a lime green variety.

6. BIG and Whopper begonias
Similar to Dragon Wing begonias, BIG and Whopper begonias grow up to 24 inches tall and are covered with rose, pink or red flowers; they are hardy and disease- and insect-free.

7. Angelonia
These upright plants are reminiscent of snapdragons and come in purples, blues and whites.
