    Well, it's getting that time of year again,,time to think about Summer Annual Flowers for your high-end contracts.......at least for me anyway. I'm in Zone 7/8 and have several accounts that are flower crazy,,unfortunatey for me I'm not a Flower guru (like most of the Ladies at the jobsites).
    I'd like to stick with something that is Low,Low,Low maintenance and gives a nice burst of color all summer,,,or at least most of it.
    What do you all prefer?

    Thanks in advance

    Wave petunias for me also. Beautiful and full of color! Best thing...once there establish they require very little water.

    I like to take a digital photo, measure the bed, sun or shade?, find out what the customer likes and how much they'll spend. Bring that to my supplier, let them figure it out. They know way more than me. I try and get $1 per flower unless it's more than a dollar. Then I charge 2 1/2 what it is.
     
  7. purple waves by far.
