High-Value Bedders

As spring warms up, save a spot in the sun for summer-loving flowers that are grown from cuttings rather than seed. This dynamic duo begins with a butterfly magnet that deer find unappetizing: 'New Gold' lantana (Arkansas Select 2000, Louisiana Select 1998, Georgia Gold 1995). 'New Gold' looks great in the company of the biggest winner of them all: Scaevola 'Blue Wonder', also called fan flower, which has won more medals than a 6-inch pot can hold: Georgia Gold, Louisiana Select, and Mississippi Medallion (1997); Texas SuperStar (1998); and Arkansas Select (1999).
