The Appeal of Annuals
Flowering annuals are the perfect way to add instant impact to your landscape with their spectacular palettes and wide-ranging shapes and sizes. Requiring lots of sun and well-drained soil, annuals produce long-lasting blooms, and are perfect for a number of roles around your property. Use these versatile plants to quickly fill in bare spots with refreshing color and beauty, while creating inviting oases for valuable pollinators. Because annuals are replanted each year, you have the opportunity to discover which ones grow best around your yard, and can experiment with endless combinations of varieties. Consider creating a cutting garden of annuals to complement and enhance your home’s interior, opting for flowers that will last days in vases and arrangement once cut. With options from subtle pastels to bold and bright blooms, you can have beautiful, fresh cut flowers throughout the season, bringing the wonder and appeal of nature indoors for all to enjoy.
Consider the Pantone Colors of the Year
Based on the unprecedented year that was 2020, Pantone chose not one but two colors of the year for 2021 – a warm and optimistic yellow paired with a gentle and natural gray. Together, they convey a message of resilience and hopefulness, and represent how we rely on one another for support and strength. Introduce these comforting colors to your home’s exterior decor in container gardens, planters, flower beds, and borders. Gerbert & Sons’ horticultural experts will recommend the perfect varieties that are compatible with our climate, including the gentle grays and silvers of dusty miller and dianthus, and the soothing yellows of daylilies, coreopsis, dahlias, peonies, and petunias. Find the perfect combination to incorporate this new color trend into your home’s plantings as we move into the warm weather of 2021.
