Annuals & Container Gardens

Instant curb appeal

Ideal for container gardens, hanging baskets, and bright borders, annuals create the instant seasonal color we crave. Each season, our Annuals Team carefully evaluates plants at Spring Flower Trials in California and trial gardens throughout Colorado to bring you the best plants for our region – and your landscape.

Bedding Plants

Experiencing our Annuals Department in springtime is unforgettable. With 25,000 of our exclusive Tagawa-grown geraniums and nearly 200 varieties of petunias stocked in spring, that’s just the beginning! In every direction, from floor to ceiling, high-quality bedding plants are yours for the choosing.

If you are creating your own container gardens, we suggest designing with thrillers, fillers, and spillers.

  • Thrillers are centerpiece plants that give height and structure to your container garden. Some favorites are salvia, canna, geraniums, coleus, vermillionaire, and ornamental grasses.
  • Fillers are companion plants that surround and complement the thriller plant. Many of our guests love sunpatiens, mounding petunia, begonia, phlox, coleus, shade impatiens, zinnias, and marigolds.
  • Spillers are trailing vines that drape over the side of your container and complete the masterpiece. Our go-to spillers are ipomea, calibrachoa, trailing petunia, verbena, vinca, and torenia.
