It will come as no shock that I have a weakness for pots and planters. Let's face it. I have a weakness for just about everything we talk about. That's why I'm here. So today let's talk pots. I love what they add as a finishing touch to a great landscaping job. They attract attention, pull a space together, and can switch out from year to year, keeping things fresh. I like my pots simple, but interesting. Here are a few favorites.
Geraniums are always popular and can be very striking. Here in small pots with sweet potato vine. I love the stark contrast of colors here.
Geraniums in a bigger planter draws more attention. I love how full and lush they are, which is important when filling a larger space. You don't want the pot looking sparse.
When filling bigger planters, I like to be more dramatic. You can do this by adding a larger perennial or shrub. Like here with the boxwood in the center, surrounded by full white geraniums.
Again the boxwood, with wandering jew this time.
Lately I have been loving the look of agave. It adds a great color and texture contrast. Planting some annuals like these lobelias really make it pop. This year I paired the agave with calibrachoa aloha series. It's also very nice.
These classic terra cotta pots have a fresh, modern look when paired with the right plant. Like the sedum and creeping jenny on the left. Then some blue fescue grass and scotch moss on the right. Again, I love the texture and contrast between the two.
I think I may start my own pot collection. Oh wait, I think I already have.
