    Bold Dramatic Container Garden ideas

  • Lesley Holley

    Container Gardens Dress Up an Entry Urns are a classic way to dress up gates, doorways, or other entry points. This one is dressed up by smart plant choices -- two sweet potato vines grab your eye and are brought together by a coleus that blends the two colors. A dracaena adds extra texture. A. Sweet potato vine -- 1 B. Sweet potato vine (Ipomoea batatas 'Blackie') -- 1 C. Coleus (Solenostemon 'Private Dancer') -- 1 D. Dracaena marginata E. Petunia 'Celebrity Mid-Blue' -- 1

Potato vine, silver lotus vine, "million bells," stipa grass, purple coleus ~ love the mixture

Love to use Spike plants and sweet-potato vines in my pots.

Stunning Combination For Any Container - Coleus, geraniums, petunias, calibrachoa and fuchsia.

Urns make everything look great. Potato vine has been a great foliage accent for years now, for good reason. Some indoor English Ivy brings a whole new shape to the pot, and Dahlias, Callas, or Cannas can make great centerpieces.

A. Alternathera 'Purple Knight' -- 1 B. Calibrachoa 'Blush Purple' -- 6 C. Plectranthus argentatus -- 1 D. Vinca major 'Variegata' -- 2 E. Dracaena marginata --

Warm, bright shades of purple, pink, red, orange, or yellow add excitement to any spot. Here, the yellow tecoma offers a lovely complement to a boldly colored impatiens. A. Tecoma stans 'Gold Star' -- 1 B. Impatiens 'Fanfare Orchid' -- 4 C. Ivy (Hedera helix) -- 1

Now THAT's a container! Need a list of probables to create this top to bottom: a bright green Colocasia/Caladium (Elephant Ear) // Persicaria microcephala 'Red Dragon' (or Lysimachia “Firecracker” – which is invasive planted in ground) // Monarda (bergamot - bee balm) "Pardon my Pink" // Coleus (red or pink) // Ipomoea - Sweet Potato Vine "Sweetheart lime"

something magical happens when I first see the cat that lives at the nursery.
