Need Flower Advice
I would like to make a circle around the lamp post in front of my condo.
I want to make it 1/3 red flowers, 1/3 white flowers, and 1/3 blue flowers.
They need to be able to survive the hot S. Fla summer and not grow too tall or my HOA will complain.
Thanks in Advance,
What's there now?
By grooming, I mean dead heading faded blooms and trimming off brown leaves. Trim back any unruly growth. Petunias spread out quite a bit when they are well tended.
Regular fertilizing is a must. Fertilize when you plant them. I use a slow release granular fertilizer when planting and liquid fertilizer later on.
Mulch with finely ground bark/soil conditioner and replenish it often.
Water your plants regularly.
There are so many beautiful petunias! Youll be able to find the perfect red, white & blue shades.
I live at high elevation with occasional hail, I quit gardening a couple years ago. But in response to the OP, asking what flowers might be suitable for the purpose they have in mind.
It must be challenging to garden in that environment.
I think your petunia suggestion was excellent! They love the heat and humidity where I live in the Southeast. A few years ago, I grew a salmon colored variety. 🌺
