How to Add Quick Color with Annuals

Add quick color to your garden by adding annual flowers in a variety of creative ways with these tips from Lowe's. Check out the full article at 1. Add Ground Color - Pick different heights of annuals and plant them in bunches. Plant them in odd numbers and stagger the placement of the plants for a natural effect. Geraniums and marigolds are ideal because you can see their colors from a distance. 2. Add Color at Eye Level - Add trailing plants like petunias in your window boxes. Use potted plants instead of cut flowers as decoration on outdoor tables; they will last longer. 3. Add Color Overhead - Add hanging baskets above your head for color. 4. Try Vertical Gardening - Hang an old shoe rack in sunny area, fill each pocket with compost, make slits in each pocket for drainage and add small bright annuals. Annuals provide instant gratification for the color starved yard or garden.
