Agusta Blue Skies nierembergia and Pink Parfait Superbena

100_8925I’m growing Agusta Blue Skies nierembergia by Proven Winners this year and love it. It needs to be kept moist until it is established and then can be kept on the dry side. It’s a low growing plant and looks good in pots, borders, and rock gardens. The above picture was taken in my garden.

This plant has bloomed non stop and really takes the heat. This plant is also called Cupflower.

100_8923I have my Agusta Blue Skies nieremberia paired with this Pink Parfait verbena also by Proven Winners. They will both be available Spring of 2010.

    That is a beautiful combination of colours: perfect.

    Hope you are feeling better, my Flower Garden Girl 🙂
    Thank you and I am feeling well today. I need to get the house cleaned for next week’s 4th of July festivities.

    Thank you, I’m a sucker for pinks and purples together.

  4. I grew it for 2 years (Purple Robe) and it overwintered. It is deer resistant!

    You and the deer resistant issues 😉 I like Purple Robe too. Very glad to know it came back cause wasn’t sure for this zone as it’s iffy you know.

    I love that little plant too!
    It’s dainty and works hard even though it seems fragile. I love plants like that.
