Purple Hanging Basket

My hanging basket this year is purple.  Purple is the color of passion, romance and sensitivity.  It is also used to symbolize wisdom, magic and mystery.

I have mixed Supertunia (Petunia) "Royal Velvet" and Superbena (Verbena) "Large Lilac Blue".  These hybrids have a showy display of blooms.  The petunias are a striking purple-blue and the verbenas produce lilac-blue flowers.  I think these colors compliment each other.

Let's hope I can keep it looking this good all summer long!

How beautiful! I love the Supertunia's! We used yellow Supertunia's for our flower baskets!

I too had some years petunias in a hanging basket and they were pure joy the whole summer. This year I have a small pink kind of them and they are just lovely, too! Hope you will have much fun with your beautiful petunias, the colours are beautiful and so is your blog. Great pictures! I enjoyed my visit here! Have a great day.
