The Grape Escape!
This week's combo is dedicated to the color GRAPE!
The Grape Escape!

Now more than ever, we gardeners are retreating to our yards as a place of solace, cheer and hope – a safe haven from all the uncertainty and anxiety we experience every time we read the news or turn on the TV. We NEED our gardens more than ever to lift our spirits, keep us active and help us from going stir crazy while we safely shelter in place and limit our social interactions. Lucky for us, the season is still ripe for planting!

And so we turn to a color that almost never fails to put a smile on our faces: purple! Favored by royalty and children alike, it's sumptuous and sophisticated without taking itself too seriously. Our symphony of grapey goodness starts with one of our signature poppies – Papaver 'Lauren's Grape'. We've paired her with our most fragrant and bloomiferous sweet pea Lathyrus odoratus ‘Cupani’, carefree and quirky Linaria triornithophora “Three Birds Flying” and upstanding Hollyhock 'Halo Purple' for a quartet of bloom sure to put a smile on your face, too! Check out all of the beautiful bloomers below!

Check out our VIDEO spotlighting even more of our favorite dream-team combinations. So many of these wonderful CA natives and Mediterranean annuals self-sow, which means you'll enjoy repeat performances next Spring and beyond!

For maximum happiness (yours AND the plants), be sure to give your hearty new friends well-draining and fertile soil (i.e. NOT heavy clay). A 1" layer of compost on top of the soil just after planting will give them a much-appreciated boost and get them off to a good start.
