Create a 16-inch container for part sun, part shade: "Matisse" Flowers to include (see numbered diagram for placement) 1. Dragon Wing Pink Begonia 2. Purple Lady Iresine 3. Jungle Gold Impatiens 4. Fanciful Pink Impatiens Directions: Pinch out flowers from Wizard Coleus to encourage growth. Apply slow-release fertilizer (such as Osmocote) at planting time and feed with a liquid fertilizer mixed with water every 10 to 14 days. Keep the soil moist, especially if exposed to more sun that shade. In high humidity, this combo handles full sun conditions; however, the leaves of dragon-wing begonia will have a red tone and grow slower. For more ideas, visit www.SimplyBeautifulGardens.com.
