    Hi all, happy (almost) Friday! I'm wondering about good companion plants for upright Vinca annuals for container planting. I'm on a heavily shaded, humid patio in zone 10A (though I've managed to get one corner that has a few hours of morning sun). Any suggestions? I also have wax begonia seedlings, but I think their watering needs and size to which they'll grow might not make them a good pairing?

    Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

    Hiya! It's probably because the image size is so big :smt005I had the camera really close! Each one is only about 5 or 6 inches tall.

    i think some miniature zinnia would look good !! but that depends on how much sun in that area !

    Impatiens would be a good complement for them. Plus they like shade. Just be sure is the shade loving impatiens. Happy gardening.
