Alternative Gardening: Heucheras for shady spots. Heuchera, commonly known as coral bells, can add a burst of color in your Colorado garden where you need a low growing plant in a variety of sun conditions.
Lots of good planting schemes for containers and gardens here. Love the black-leaved Dahlia with purple Calibrachoa (they look like mini petunias), chartreuse sweet potato vine, alternanthera, pentas and bacopa. Sadly pots never look like this!
I'm deft doing this with our leftover whiskey barrels from the wedding! So awesome! Collection of wine barrels for container gardening. I like that one is tipped a bit, which will allow spectacular color.
