By Sandy Anderson Old fashioned annuals These colorful, time-test- ed favorites will add a touch of nostalgia to your garden. For centuries, gardeners have grown annuals from seed. Seed is reliable and rel- atively inexpensive. These annuals provide season long color and have been pleasing gardeners for hundreds of years. Below are listed some of the old fashioned annuals still popular today. Cosmos is perfect for the back of the border. They pre- fer full sun and don't mind dry soft. Cosmos will grow up to 5 feet tall. Cosmos was introduced in 1799 but didn't become popular until the early 1900's. Pot marigold likes full sun but does best in the cool- er temperatures as it doesn't like it too hot. It's best to deadhead for longer bloom- ing. Pot marigold average 12 inches in height and colors from whitish yellow to bright yellow to deep orange. It is available in both single and double flowers. Joseph's Coat features vibrant ornamental foliage. It does well in full sun. Joseph's coat has ornamen- Redwood County Relay for Life tal red, yellow, and green foliage on a plant vaD-ing in hei'ght from 18-48 inches tall. It has small flowers but are inconspicuous compared to the foliage. Modern culti- vars feature yellow" as well as maroon-shaded leaves. Four o'clocks have fra- grant blooms and can take pretty much any soil and will take high temperatures. They just need full sun. The plants have 1-2 inch trum- pet-shaped evening scented blooms which open up about the same time every dab". Petunia is a good edging plant and likes full Sun. Already by the 1870's there were several hybrid types of petunias. A number of early petunias are still available in current catalogs. Zinnia offers a wide range of flower colors. They love full sun and hot, dry weather. It will do well in most soil but give them enough space for air circula- tion as they are susceptible to mildew. You can encour- age bloom time by deadhead- ing. Zinnias can range in height from the dwarfs, at 3 inches to the tall zinnias at 30 inches. Several heirloom varieties of zinnias are still in the seed trade including Cactus, California Lilliput and Balsam does best tial shade and drained soil. Balsam were initially rose-red, but the blossoms were the 19th century. colors are still including rose, lilac, yellow and purple let spotted with Heliotrope full sun to partial needs extra water spells.
