Potted Plants for Shade. The main dark leaved plant with pink is Dracena 'baby doll', the pink and green speckled heart shaped leaf on the left is a Caladium, the reddish flowers are from the begonia 'angel wing', the purple trailing plant is Scaevola, the yellow one is Bidens.
For the Deck- Mosquito grass (a.k.a. Lemon Grass) repels mosquitoes | the strong citrus odor drives mosquitoes away--very functional patio plant, plus, the leaves make a great healthy tea, and the cut up stems are great in Thai dishes, like Tom Lum (coconut milk) soup.
