This is a sponsored post with Monrovia plants.
Hi friends! Last week I shared with you that I was planting my containers in the back yard and today I’m sharing the plants I used as well as an update on the beautiful Monrovia plants I added in the front yard a few weeks ago. Monrovia is sponsoring this post and I’m happy to be working with them because you can definitely count on them to sell beautiful plants this time of year, perfect for in ground annuals or perennials or for container gardening. I’ve always counted on the Monrovia name for beautiful blooms! I’d love for you to check out Monrovia’s site for all their gorgeous plants available. Just put in your zip code to see what’s available in your area.
I bought all my plants at my local Lowes, so you can check them out for lots of variety on Monrovia plants!
Let’s see what I chose this year! From the left to right: Lanai Upright Verbena, Sweet Potato Vine, which I love to use for trailing plants, Magnum New Guinea Impatiens for an explosion of color.
And to anchor my large container, I love to add a tall grass in the center, this one is Sky Rocket Fountain Grass. These grasses grow tall and look so pretty blowing in the breeze.
Now that summer is just about here, my containers will be growing and blooming just in time for outdoor weather. I will be using this patio even more this year now that I have an umbrella to shade the sofa and it will be so fun to watch these plants grow.
We are getting plenty of rain right now, so these plants should really take off. I could add one more in here, but I don’t want to overcrowd it, since they do spread out so much once they start growing.
Those New Guinea impatiens are doing so well in my front yard urns that I got more for the backyard in this beautiful shade of pink. They have buds just waiting to pop open.
Meanwhile, back in the front yard, let’s check on those planters. The red Calabrachea I added in the urn by my sidewalk has completely filled out and is gorgeous!
Those little red blooms catch the sunlight and look so pretty.
And up on the front steps, my two urns planted with more Monrovia New Guinea impatiens are looking spectacular. These blooms look like firecrackers out here!
I find myself glancing out the front door to see what that red is out there. Oh yeah! It’s those beautiful Monrovia blooms that are putting on quite the show.
They really do wake up my front porch and you can see them driving down the road from the street, creating a welcoming presence to my house and garden. I just love these and so far they are blooming up a storm. Once the blooms fade, I pick them off and more are right behind the old spent ones. If you want to learn how to grow more beautifully, check out Monrovia for so much inspiration and color! Don’t forget that you can get Monrovia plants at your local Lowes, so check them out.
