I went to the preview yesterday of the new Loblaws President's Choice plants for this season.
New in the Calliope series of geraniums is Crimson Flame. It’s the shade of deep pink that stands out in all light conditions, but particularly on overcast days. This one notable for drought tolerance.
I liked the new hibiscus called Fiesta. It combines pink, orange and red all in one flower. In full sun on a deck, it becomes a focal point.
Freeman herbs grows basil standards for the PC lineup. They do look charming, but don’t overlook the grooming.
I'll have more in my column tomorrow in the Hamilton Spectator.
