You’ve heard of the “people of Walmart”, well, here is “the plants of Walmart”. I wanted to see if I could plant a pretty pot with the most common annuals that you can purchase at Walmart.
Here is a photo:
This pot has “wave” brand petunias, purple and pink, white alyssum, and blue annual lobelia. A lot of stores sell the alyssum and lobelia in six-packs. One tip to making your pot look full is to use all 6, or if the pot is smaller use 3, in one clump. Don't separate the six and make 6 tiny plantings around the pot. It looks thin and you lose the color impact. Here I put the alyssum and lobelia in clumps of 3's. This pot was planted about one week ago, in a month it will be full and beautiful. The alyssum will drape over the pot and the petunias will do the same.
I like this color combination, hope you do, too! Show me some of your favorite containers!
