Ideas for purple or deep burgundy plants for planters in town centre
Each year our In Bloom group plant up the planters, troughs, tubs and hanging baskets in our town centre, generally to a colour theme. (It was In the Pink this year). Next year is the Queen's Platinum Jubilee so we are thinking something like cineraria or other silver leaved plant with either deep purple or majestic burgundy flowers. We generally use pelargoniums and viburnum as they are relatively maintenance free. Any ideas as to what we could use that would flower all summer and look regal? We are NOT going for red white and blue! We need to be ordering them sharpish as the nursery we use grows them for us.
