The Color Green

A shady container does not have to be a left in the dark. There are plenty of shade loving plants that will brighten a shady spot, without flowers.

Why not try green foliage plants.  You won't have to worry that your containers look life-less when somethings not in bloom

There are many shades of green and just as many textures to be played with

There's no reason to be afraid of the shade, not when there's green around

 The color green, this we like

The right pot and the right plant

When choosing a container for your house it's important to choose the right style. These Frank Loyd Wright style containers would look out of place at say for instance an "English Tudor" home or a " "Colonial" style home  

The containers have simple shapes, and very architectural clean lines' and the house does too 
The planting is rather simple and clean as well. The tall center grass gracefully arches over the low planting of purple Petunia's and Lime Licorice

The result. modern and clean, just like the lines of the home  The right containers and the right plants
makes this planting work. This we like
