Annual Flowers for Sunny Flowerbeds

Are you looking to add beautiful annual color to your sunny flowerbeds and containers? There are many options, including purslane, angelonia, pentas, zinnias, vinca, marigolds, bronze leaf begonias, lantana, and celosia.

Before planting, it’s essential to prep your soil by mixing compost and expanded shale or Covington’s Soil Builder (a pre-mix of compost, expanded shale, and greensand) into it. This will give you the fluffy, nutritious soil your plants love.

Keep your flowers looking vibrant and healthy by feeding them with a slow-release fertilizer like Covington’s Flower & Garden fertilizer, specially designed for North Texas soils. Remember to water your flowers as needed and spread a 2-inch layer of mulch over your flowerbeds. This will help keep water in, reduce weeds, and give your landscape a polished look.
