Heat-Loving Replacement Annuals for Containers

During the hot days of July and August, container plantings can begin to look unsightly. Read ahead to learn how to improve the look of your container plantings.

Improve the appearance of a container by pruning back overgrown plants or removing dried out, weather-damaged, or non-blooming annuals. Replace them with heat-loving annuals such as: Angelonia, Bracteantha, Celosia, Cleome, Petunia, Portulaca, and Zinnia. For a shade container consider Coleus and Impatiens. Carefully remove spent annuals to minimize root disturbance to remaining plants. Mid-summer fertilization to encourage growth will maximize impact from newly planted annuals. Make sure to water well after transplanting.
