Purple and orange are one of my favourite combos. Very nice Connie. I think I have the same begonia. I bought a basket of 4, divided them up and used them in four of my shade containers. I wonder if they'll keep blooming all summer. They make quite a statement!
What is the pink flower in the second pic?

These are gorgeous! I've been waiting for my pots to fill in a bit before posting pics. :)

The pink flowers..."Madeira, Crested Merlot" (argyranthemum). I keep my tags. :) They were so full of gorgeous blooms when I bought them. I have deadheaded now... hopefully they come back just as strong.

Tara, I waited 3 weeks before taking these pics for the same reason. And again for the same reason, I didn't take pics of the other pots or the hanging baskets. I bought smaller this year trying to cut back on costs. Last year I paid $9.99 for almost everything and the pots were great right from day one. This waiting for them to fill in though... not sure what's best. If I had more money, I'd go back to the same nursery as last year again!

Oh, and the begonias. I had the same begonias last year but a different color and they did bloom steadily all summer long. They were beautiful!
