This is an old school annual that will blow you away!!  This is the ONE to use if you want to fill a large area up.
Of all of our 4-pack annuals I recommend this one the most for  a sunny spot.  I also recommend this for using in a pot by the front door.

Growing Tips:
Cyperus Papyrus is not hardy enough to survive winters with freezing temperatures and it is not a candidate to overwinter inside. It is a very fast grower and will quickly grow to impressive size when replanted in the spring.

The plant can be planted in pots, along the waters edge of a pond, or even in a pond. The crown of the plant should never be covered in water and in fact both of these varieties can thrive in water as shallow as a few inches. The purpose is to keep the bulk of the soil or root mass wet.


Coleus
Don't over water!!!
Coleus: Colorful, Leafy and Luxurious. Coleus plants are eye-dazzlers and easy-going with impossibly colorful leaves. They're magnificent on their own in a flower pot, and the flash of their foliage lights up a flower bed.

Zinnia

Zinnias and their vivid blooms are the best-kept secret for attracting monarchs and other butterflies to the garden. This another annual that I just love using because of the variety of zinnias to choose from, and what you can do with them. For instance, take 2 4 packs of State Fair plant them around your mail post, one of the easiest and beautiful garden projects.

Blooming from spring to the first frost, its robust growth and extensive branching ensure lavish flowering and a lush-looking plant.

Dusty Miller

Dusty Miller is grown for it's silvery-gray, fern-like foliage. Dusty Miller makes terrific border and edging plants, offering a striking contrast to the colorful flowers and green colors of your lawn and garden.
If allowed, the plants will produce flowers. I myself pinch off the buds, as I grow these plants strictly for the attractive foliage.

 Cosmos
Cosmos are freely flowering annual plants that are ridiculously easy to grow. If you're looking for a flower that will stay in bloom for months and can be grown by simply scattering seeds, cosmos are a great choice. The flowers sit atop long slender stems and form a cloud of color that not only looks attractive throughout the summer but also attract bees, butterflies, and birds to your garden.

They are prized in the home garden for their large, bright blooms and low maintenance? Yes I always laugh when I write that, have you ever dead headed a Petunia? It's not that bad, actually you can do some very cool face painting after you dead head your plants.

Varieties of multiflora petunias are much more compact and require much less space than grandiflora varieties. The flowers of multiflora petunias are also much smaller and usually average about 2 inches in width. However, multiflora varieties are also much more prolific and propagate and much more easily. In addition, multiflora variety petunias are much more resilient and weather resistant in terms of withstanding rain and extreme heat.

Proven Winners

Prince Tut

The plant can be planted in pots, along the waters edge of a pond, or even in a pond. The crown of the plant should never be covered in water and in fact both of these varieties can thrive in water as shallow as a few inches. The purpose is to keep the bulk of the soil or root mass wet.
The root ball can be submerged but it isn't necessary. If the plant is put into a pot, I would suggest plugging the hole or holes in the bottom of the pot to keep as much water as possible in the pot.

Prince Tut will also do well when planted in normal garden beds. It is best to keep the soil moist, but once established Price Tut has can be surprisingly tolerant of dry conditions.

Petunia Double

The double Petunia from a small beginning has developed into a fabulous flower that puts on a spectacular show all summer.
The double varieties now available are remarkably big, and rank with some of the most beautiful subjects in the garden where, for a riotous splash of color and a glowing display, they are second to none.

The only celosia I’ve seen that weren’t at their best were those that were over watered, or planted in soils heavy with clay. Great for edging and height in the back
