The 4th of July is my favorite holiday. Your garden is in peak form. Shopping for the get together is fun-party-food & red, white & blue plants! You see patriotic plantings in Red | White | and Blue everywhere. Some are planted in the shape of flags in gardens & container gardens.
Baskets and container gardens can give your holiday get-together a patriotic feeling with red, white and ‘blue’ flowers. Its easy to find red and white plants. True blue flowers that give your plantings a truly patriotic look are sometimes a bit of a challenge so start early. Its not too late! Grab the kids, and the pets run to your local Independent Garden Center (IGC) or Big Box Store and here’s some ideas.
I chose a red miniature rose for one container pot and some red geraniums in another. The blue flowers I chose are called ‘blue’ ajuga chocolate chip and I found some blue petunias. The white flowers are a perennial called Candytuft, Sempervirens Snow Cone that are sun and drought tolerant.
Plant your patriotic red, white and blue gardens early so they will be full and lush in time for your 4th of July parties and family get togethers.
Miniature red roses of any variety, white Proven Winners Candytuft, and ‘blue’ Ajuga Chocolate Chip, all perennials make a good patriotic garden choice.
- Purple Petunias are always a good choice. Your gardens will fill-in and provide plenty of Patriotic fun and color for your Patriotic holiday picnics! Kids love them! Be sure to add flags, candles, and decorations.
- Add miniature white & red roses, even lavender shades.
