Tue, 08 May 2012, 14:08:26 ET

Gardener's Confidence Collection DEARING, Ga., May 8, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- What could be more fun than playing in the dirt? How about playing with your kids in the dirt? With Mother's Day approaching Sunday, May 13, now is a great time to create a beautiful blooming gift for mom, suggests Gardener's Confidence Collection. With a little quick and easy research, dad and the kids can plant a decorative container of repeat blooming plants to provide a unique gift and long-lasting flowers for her enjoyment.

The Gardener's Confidence Collection site provides a quick how-to video on creating container gardens: .

For the container, simply select a watering can or pot that the kids can hand paint. Then fill it with re-blooming plants such as the Pinwheel Gardenia, an outstanding container plant that will add year-round evergreen beauty. Its whimsical white flowers with lovely fragrance and repeat blooms are abundant.

"Kids are sure to love the pinwheel-like flowers that look as though they are spinning against the dark green foliage. They can even snip them to bring inside in collected bottles and vases filled with water, confident that the plants will bloom again," said Gardener's Confidence Collection horticulturist Mike Sikes. "And mom will love the beauty and fragrance of the blossoms floating in a decorative bowl.

"For the perfect patio container for mom, let the kids pick out their favorite color of impatiens or begonias. Add a fern and some ivy, then top it off with a large, focal plant such as the Mini Penny Hydrangea. With its tight compact form and dependable re-blooming of pink or blue, the Mini Penny makes an excellent addition to a container and will last the summer," Sikes said. "The Mini Penny also makes a great cut flower that the kids can bring inside for an easy floral arrangement for mom."

And perfect for Mother's Day, the name hydrangea means, appropriately, "thanks for understanding!"
