Bundled Combinations Shine in Every Region

Which combinations work best for your area of the country?  Find the ones with varieties that flourish in your region and are sought-after by home gardeners.

Ian McGreevyFour Star’s Bundled Combination Kits come in more than 300 combinations, many of which are ideally suited to every U.S. region.  Thanks to the real-time tracking of actual sales at retail, we are able to rank the best selling, most popular combinations for every area of the country. These rankings consider multiple years of sales data, customer feedback to regional sales representatives and performance attributes, such as heat- and drought-tolerance, according to Angie VanWashenova, Internal Sales Supervisor.

“We understand that growing attention-grabbing hanging baskets or patio pots cannot be a one size fits all model,” she says.  “That is why we offer over 300 beautiful combinations with a wide variety of color mixes, textures and shapes for our growers.”

Several best-selling recipes have become available as Bundled Combinations for 2020.  An example is Belle Ambition.  “This combo was a top seller for us in the retail segment, and we expect to see that bundled kit be a favorite this year with growers as well,” adds VanWashenova.  Belle Ambition is pictured at right.

Coast to coast favorite recipes

Ian McGreevy
Some combinations are popular throughout the country, just like Above & Beyond.


Growers all over the country can be sure to find combinations that will work best for them based on regionality and season. Above & Beyond, a popular combination featuring some of the Supertunia® series’ best performers, will naturally have a different growing season in Georgia than in Wisconsin. However, Above & Beyond, along with other finished combinations such as Grand Traverse, Sunglasses, Evening Breeze, Fruit Salad, Gloria Rose, Bahama Beach, Lilac Festival, Bermuda Skies and Evening Breeze continue to be top sellers in the Bundled Combination Kit program each year, maintaining popularity in every region of the U.S.
