Finds: For the garden

SunPatiens: Finally, impatiens that can stand up to the sun. VIVA's new SunPatiens, rolling into Home Depot stores by the end of the month, according to the big boxer, won't droop in the heat of the day and come in orange, white, purple and red. The new version of the popular annual, previously restricted to shade and partial-shade beds, has tested positive for extreme-weather survival alongside geraniums and petunias. $3.99-$5.99.



Black cannas: The towering landscape, container and garden bed plant, treated as an annual here, has shown up in more pots and arrangements the past year or so with its broad sweeping leaves and red/orange flowers, topping out at about 4 feet and higher. This year, Canna Tropicanna Black is the newest sun-loving incarnation with purple-black foliage and contrasting scarlet flowers with gold-spotted throats ... unbeatable when combined with its traditional cousins or lime-green plantings. Look for them at garden centers or at www.willowcreekgardens .com.
