The ideal outdoor space also incorporates landscaping. Finalist Sunnyside Gardens says pink, red and white are the “in” colors this summer.
“We are very excited about the new hydrangea ‘summer crush,’ an ever-blooming hydrangea with beautiful, raspberry red flowers,” Sunnyside’s owner Mike Hurley says. “There are a tremendous variety of plants that are excellent for entertaining. We love some of the tried-and-true performers such as lantana, whopper begonias, and sun coleus. For plants that can take the heat and late summer rains, you really can’t beat mandevilla. It comes in pink, red, and white.”
