Persian Shield (Strobilanthes dyerianus)
Gardens Ideas, Shades Of Purple, Colors, Plants, You, Natural, Persian Shield, Coats, Purple Leaves
Persian Shield. Easily multiplied by simply breaking off and sticking in potting soil. // Great Gardens Ideas // I love this plant. Easy to grow and multiple. The color is brilliant.
I've been adding these to my large patio pots along with potato vines. Beautiful! Persian Shield is known botanically as Strobilanthes dyerianus. It is native to Burma and has 8-inch-long leaves that are iridescent in shades of purple, lilac and pink, with purple-maroon on the undersides. If those colors aren't awesome enough, the foliage looks like it has a light coat of silver electroplated to it. Although newly in fashion. the plant has been used in gardens since Victorian times.
This year plant Persian Shield (Strobilanthes dyerianus) in pots or in the ground. It is a perennial in USDA Zones 8-11. In colder climates, it can be grown as a summer annual. The iridescent purple leaves shimmer and the leaves feature bold green stripes along the veins. Persian shield can grow tall but you should keep pinching it to keep it bushy. In pots, pair with silver plants like artemisia or chartreuse plants like 'Margarita' ornamental sweet potato.

Use Containers for Color & Height. Dress up your deck with knockout containers. Flatter areas along railings or beside a door with pots that can hold tall, striking plantings such as this tropical canna ringed with fuchsia, coleus, and lantana. Bring in pots of annuals for bursts of color, or mix your annuals and perennials together like this smaller container of begonias paired with trailing creeping Jenny.

colorful potted plants. Good container garden idea with the succulents
I like this container garden. It makes the eye move upward from the succulents, that grab your attention because of their bold shape and tropical nature, to the vibrant color of the geraniums and sweet potato vines, to the feathery texture of the ferns.
Amp Up Your Flowers: Punch Up Color Add color and pattern to your patio with fabrics. "There's nothing like new pillows and cushions to change the whole mood of a place," says garden designer Jon Carloftis. "Outdoor fabrics no longer have to be plasticky and uncomfortable to withstand the weather." Toss in some patterned pillows with solids for a more dynamic look and include ottomans and floor pillows for extra seating. Design Underfoot Use a colorful and patterned outdoor rug to pull your patio furnishings together. The rug will liven up pavers, brick, or wood flooring, bring your color scheme down to the ground, and create a visual center for your outdoor room. Open Up Include a large market umbrella in your patio decor. Besides providing much-needed shade to an unprotected patio, it adds a nice vertical element to the usual horizontal lines of an outdoor room as well as bringing in color overhead. Perk Up Old Furniture Give your tired patio furniture a facelift with spray paint. With so many colors and finishes now available for just about every type of surface, your makeovers are limited only by your imagination. Even your outdoor pillows can get a paint makeover with taped-off stripes or stencils. "Each year there are more and better choices and quality products available," designer Carloftis says. "There's a whole new world out there!" Raise the Roof Create a shady oasis in the backyard with a canopy over your patio. Available at many price points, the structure can be as simple as a fold-away unit or as complex as a permanent feature with integrated planters at each corner. This lovely pavilion is the ideal spot for a conversation grouping or an outdoor dining area. Keep It Private Turn your patio into a secluded spot in the garden with privacy panels. Introduce the softness of fabric with drapery panels as seen here, if you have the structure to support it. Or build upright lattice panels that screen but don't block your view. Add Garden Glamour Bring a bit of bling to your outdoor room with a crystal chandelier or two over your dining table. If you don't have the means to hot-wire electrical fixtures, drape them instead with battery-operated twinkle lights. Another option: chandeliers that use a battery-operated taper candle in each arm of the fixture. Create a Reading Room Make a cozy reading nook in a corner of your patio. Set up a comfy chair with pillows and an ottoman, and tuck a small side table next to the chair. Add an outdoor-safe table or floor lamp with an all-weather shade to keep reading well past twilight. Light the Night Enhance your patio with the subtle shimmer of candlelight. Place pillar candles on tables, in containers, and in luminaria around your outdoor room. For a romantic glow overhead, group various sizes of pillar candles on a metal disk suspended by chains. Entwine the candles with draping plants such as lysimachia, moss, or ivy. Open an Outdoor Cafe Create a colorful corner protected from breezes for a place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or glass of orange juice. Your day will seem brighter when you begin it with a contemplative moment in the garden. Pretty and cheerful linens and chair cushions make the spot even more inviting. Make the Most of Furniture Furnish your patio with multitasking furniture. Your patio functions as a place to relax, to work on gardening projects, and to entertain, so keep all those activities in mind when purchasing furnishings. This potting bench, for example, works hard at its day job but also acts as an ideal sideboard for a social gathering. Get Ready to Grill Invest in a good grill and make it the foundation of an outdoor kitchen. Stock cabinetry and countertops can create an inexpensive setup with a sink attached to hoses for water supply and drainage. "A new grill can change your life and keep the party and cooking mess outside for most of the summer," Carloftis says. "Not only is food healthier when cooked on the grill, but cooking out is easy, nice to be outdoors for a change, and provides another good family tradition to start." A Drop in the Bucket "Add a water feature to the mix," Carloftis says. "It doesn't have to be the huge ordeal, in-ground, tiled, cost-a-fortune thing. Use a water-tight pot, fill it with water, and toss in some floating plants to jazz up your terrace. In my own yard I found an old copper pot and added a spitting frog to make some noise," the designer says. Floating glass globes like these will also add movement and color. Make It Flea Market Fabulous Add character to your patio furnishings with flea market finds. Old metal bed frames make excellent lounge furniture, while vintage wicker enhances the romance of your space. Repurposed architectural salvage and collected pieces create a unique outdoor room filled with personality. Make an Entrance Whether your patio is attached to your house or standing alone in the yard, give it an entrance that proclaims it as a destination and creates a focal point. A charming arbor, such as this one, makes a style statement but your entrance could be as plain as a metal arch or gate or as simple as a couple of lengths of picket fencing. The secret is to blend it into your landscape with flowering and climbing plants. Create a Color Scheme A simple color scheme for both plantings and accessories makes your patio decor serene and beautifully balanced. In this outdoor room, masses of lavender petunias punctuate the patio in pots, with the color echoed in the climber on the lattice fence. Lavender tints the grass plumes and dark foliage of the potted sweet potato vine beside the chaise. Pillows in the same hue accent the seating. The white furniture, weathered gray pavers and fencing, and green foliage provide neutral foil for the rich color. Think Big with Plants "Most people tend to think of containers as temporary or seasonal things that go away in the winter months," says Carloftis. "This year, why not start out with a new set of frost-proof pots, large enough to plant permanent trees or shrubs. Then plant your regular annuals at the bases of the permanent plantings. It sure makes it easier to leave everything outside all winter long." Put your large containers on heavy-duty casters so you can move them around the patio as needed. Set the Scene "Coordinate your container plantings with outdoor fabrics and furnishings," garden author Pamela Crawford says. "Pillows, cushions, rugs, and containers add instant color to a patio grouping. Coordinating your container combos completes the look." Head for the Tropics Add a bit of the exotic to your patio with tropical plants in containers. Select varieties of different heights and leaf size and mass them together for a lush rain-forest look. Inject the flavor of southern climes with your container selection too. "Use Mexican pottery for a quick splash of color," says Crawford. "Even if you aren't experienced in putting together mixed plantings, Mexican pottery is so decorative that the plantings can include just one type of plant in each pot and still be riotously colorful." Climb the Walls "Create a flowering wall on your patio," Crawford says. Use flat-backed planters or pots and mass several together for a living wall. "Although they look good the day they're planted, they look spectacular a few weeks later," she says. Remember to keep the planters well watered every day. Try an Herbal Remedy "Grow herbs and tomatoes in pots on your patio this year," Carloftis says. "If you have children, involve them, as there is no better learning tool or entertaining toy out there." Gather a grouping of herbs on your outdoor dining table as a functional centerpiece. "You will not believe how much you can get from a small space and have a conversation piece when friends come over," he says. Amp Up Your Flowers "Change your floral combinations this year," Carloftis says. "Think texture as much as you think flowers. Even when you hit a perfect combination, it's still good to mix it up. There are no real rules for a successful textural combination. Just go to the nursery and pull together plants you like in the wagon they provide and see what looks good grouped." Look for plants with different leaf sizes, shades, and types.
Container gardening is the practice of growing plants exclusively in containers instead of planting them in the ground. Pots, traditionally made of terracotta but now more commonly plastic, and windowboxes have been the most commonly seen. Small pots are commonly called flowerpots.
Outdoor Flower Pots: Succulents mixed with flowers. Would match flowers to exterior color scheme.
