Great Color Choices for Texas Gardens

Springtime in Dallas! Now is the time to add splashes of color to your landscape but where do you begin? Calloway’s Nursery <hyper link with www.calloways.com > offers a collection of annual flowers that have been tested in the Trial Gardens at the Dallas Arboretum. The Trial Gardens were created for the main purpose of growing and evaluating many different plants in the drastic climate of the Metroplex.)
Callie Select < link with http://www.calloways.com/callie-select > plants are grown to size by local nurseries for Calloway’s garden centers. When they arrive, they are far larger than bedding plants and have well-established root systems. They make a dazzling presentation of color and foliage. These annual plants possess “designer” qualities that you will love!
Callie Select < link with http://www.calloways.com/callie-select > plants offer compact growth habits, profuse blooming, lush foliage and will thrive in our Texas weather. In addition, Callie Select < link with http://www.calloways.com/callie-select > plants come in a range of colors, tested and true, to better meet your preferences as well as match current fashion trends here in Dallas.
An emerging winner from this collection is ‘Wendy’s Wish’ Salvia. A native of Australia, ‘Wendy’s Wish’ has adapted well to Texas gardening and thrives in our crazy weather! Jimmy Turner, senior director of gardens at the Dallas Arboretum, said, “The warmer and more humid the weather becomes, the more flowers this plant will put on.”
‘Wendy’s Wish’ flowers best in full sun to light shade. It grows 3 to 4 feet tall and wide and blooms lipstick pink flowers. You can’t miss this color in the garden! Butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to the unique tubular blossoms with fluted tips. ‘Wendy’s Wish’ works as a thriller plant for mixed containers < link mix containers with http://www.calloways.com/color-creations-container-gardens > or solo as mass plantings < link mass plantings with http://www.calloways.com/preparing-soil > in flower beds.
