This exceptional autumn-colored beauty loves cool weather. The vibrant orange blooms of this Flirtation are large and flat with a layering of flower upon flower that creates a stunning bloom display. The sturdy, semi-trailing habit makes it perfect for fall-inspired hanging baskets or containers or add it to an area of your landscape that could use a makeover for fall.
Superbells are a perfect choice to usher in the fall season with their warm autumn color choices and their superb performance in cool weather. Plant a container or hanging basket with one brilliant yellow, red, orange, or plum variety—or mix and match them in containers or the landscape.
