    Some flower color work from one of our commercial clients that was installed back in May.

  3. Do you guys ever use pentas in nor cal? IMO they are the best choice as an annual here, but are moreso a perrenial. Everyone uses impatiens in the winter, but conditions have to be ideal to get more than 2-3 good months out of them. A lot of people started using vinca in the summer but we have fungal issues with them. Penta is the old faithful.

    That is some good looking stone work.

    Not really sure but we may have in the past. We've used vincas before. And what is up with the disease problem on the vincas? You are the second person to mention a problem with vincas. A guy I believe from Texas asked me if we are having problems with the vincas here.

    Thanks. We dressed the beds with some red humus. We originally wanted to put in some Deco medium bark but we love the red humus looks much better. It really makes the beds look more elegant. And although this property is a mobile home community, it litteraly looks like a golf course in there.

    Yeah, they look real elegant with the red humus, and I almost thought it was at a golf course.

    That flower setup is very very nice. Do you have to treat your flower for mildew...like the zinnia ones in particular.
