For a classic summer-in-the-country planting, pack your garden beds with white cosmos, blue geraniums, catmint, salvias and yellow alchemilla, heleniums and coreopsis. For the darker notes, try Penstemon Burgundy, Astrantia major ‘Claret’, Digitalis ‘Milk Chocolate’ and Verbena bonariensis. Complete the look with English Climbing roses, such as The Pilgrim Climbing, which has a delicious tea and myrrh fragrance and repeat-flowers well.
cool idea, but the flowers don't want to grow in the part of the bucket that is shaded. this person must have just planted these flowers because there is no way the pansies inside the bucket would bloom.
