Marcie Forsberg's Top Plant Recommendation: Favorite Annuals for Minnesota and Surrounding Area.
Tall and airy, this spikey purple flower (verbena on a stick) re-seeds and looks great with nearly any other plant. Fabulous with Tiger eye sumac.
'Leilani' and 'Blue Horizon' are the taller varieties. These are great re-seeders combined in a mixed border. Easy to maintain with a great periwinkle blue color.
Another great re-seeder, this tall white nicotiana is perfect added to the garden with it's large foliage and bloom that attracts hummingbirds. Easy to maintain.
Gotta have a few. I love the butter color yellow petunias tucked in with ageratum.
Sun or shade, tough and gorgeous for MN gardens and containers.
