Hello everyone and happy Saturday! It's another beautiful day here in the heart of Carolina, perfect for a bit of spring planting. And as usual at this time of year, do we ever have some gorgeous plants for you. Another shipment of summer tropicals is due to arrive at the garden center today. The perennial area is bursting with plants, the azaleas are in full bloom, the shade area is full, and the shrubs and trees are looking better than ever.

Or how about some pots filled with Calibrachoas?
Calibrachoa are available in multiple colors and provide an abundance of brightly colored blooms all season long. They are easy to grow and very rewarding, perfect for all kinds of containers including window boxes, hanging baskets, and combination planters.
Another profuse bloomer is this Giant White (suteracordata) Bacopa.
Hundreds of beautiful flowers cover these trailing plants all summer, even when other varieties of Bacopa stop blooming. They offer large unique white flowers which contrast nicely with their dark green foliage. Another perfect choice for your container planters.
And for a bit of a vertical attraction, why not give the Black-eyed Susan Vine a try?
This 'Susie Clear Orange' vine looks fabulous trained to fences, posts, lattice work and trellises.
