A lavender-blue streptocarpella (an African violet relative, actually) is intriguing enough that your guests won't be able to resist taking a closer look. This nonstop bloomer is a perfect companion for anything orange or yellow -- such as the glowing orange osteospermum here. Tip: Streptocarpella is a cinch to propagate. Just pinch off new growth tips and pot them up in a little potting soil. They'll root in a couple of weeks. A. Streptocarpella 'Concord Blue' -- 2 B. Bacopa (Sutera 'Snowstorm') -- 2 C. Osteospermum 'Orange Symphony'

This exciting combo is well suited to a spot where you entertain (like a deck or patio) because of its energizing colors. A. Petunia 'Supertunia Priscilla' -- 2 B. Verbena 'Aztec Silver Magic' -- 2 C. Calibrachoa 'Starlette Yellow' -- 2 D. Diascia 'Diamonte Apricot'

Color can affect your mood -- so use it to your advantage. This is a great example; pastel shades of lavender and fuchsia pop with a bit of white to create a soft, romantic look in a sunny spot. The soothing combo is perfect for your favorite spot to relax with a good book and glass of lemonade. A. Calibrachoa 'Flamingo' -- 2 B. Petunia 'Supertunia Priscilla' -- 2 C. Verbena 'Wildfire White'

They're an unusual choice, but require next to no watering, even in hot, sunny situations. A. Hens and chicks (Sempervivum tectorum
