There are some beautiful new plants for 2013, and the lush combination of purple/black foliage, blue-ish foliage, and golden foliage remains a favorite. This container combo would be especially beautiful if done as a symmetrical pair flanking a patio entrance or garden gate.
Here are the plants shown above:
- Belamcanda chinensis ‘Gone with the Wind’
- Coleus ColorBlaze® Marooned™
- Cedrus deodara ‘MonKinn’
- Sedum ‘Cherry Tart’
- Can-Can™ Dark Purple Calibrachoa
And here’s the container selected for this combo: http://www.westelm.com/products/dune-planters-d988/
