Flower Pots

Hi Friends, I figured it was about time I entertained you with a riveting edition of what is growing in my flower pots! :o) You knew you couldn't escape me for long! 

I had a lot of fun buying plants and putting together my pots this year. I did go a little overboard but I also knew that I wouldn't be able to be out and about in my yard as much as usual (and this has proven to be true) so these guys help me get my gardening fix by just stepping out the door. 

I like this combo of coleus, persian shield and sweet potato. This is in a little pot but is filling out nicely! 

My trio that I tried to coordinate consists of several types of coleus including the fun and frilly kind, sweet potato vine, petunias and purple fountain grass. These are cheap pots that I reuse from some nice mums I had one year and hopefully the vine will grow over them soon so you can't even see the pot! 

By my front door I have two matching pots with sweet potato vine, petunias and purple fountain grass. I like the bright green vine and it is pretty showy- I don't think I've used it for a while out front. Someday I am going to compile what I did for pots every year but mostly it is a variation of the same thing!

And finally....the biggest grower of all! And the best photo I can get when I ask Michael to take a photo in front of my flowers. :o)

Have a great day!

  1. Your pots are so beautiful Rose. I'm sad to admit that NONE of my pots have been planted and I'm totally afraid to go any buy stuff with the fear that only crap is going to be left. I suppose that's what happens when you wait until almost JULY to do decorative plants ...
