Shade garden: Overflowing pots and a friendly dog will welcome visitors to a covered porch. Silvery Japanese painted fern, hosta 'Krossa Regal', leather wood fern, heuchera 'Autumn Bride', and foamflower 'Black Velvet' planted in low terra-cotta pots.
What a modern idea for a coastal garden. These steel planters make such a contrast to the spiky, upright sedges. Design by Giulietti Schouten Architects. - repetition of one architectural plant makes a great feature.
