I woke up this morning and went outside to water my vegetable garden. I could feel Fall in the air. This sparked my sleepy brain to start thinking about making up those Fall containers. Here are some ideas:
I love the colors of this container. Of course, I am partial to pinks and purples in the garden. The strappy leaves of the Phormium ‘Sundowner’ give a vertical line and a grounding to the container. The Echeveria nodulosa with its paddle leaves and pink veins provides an interesting contrast to the strappy leaves and maple like shape of the Heucherella ‘Sweet Tea.’ Also, the Echeveria nodulosa mitigates the warmth of the Phormium ‘Sundowner’ and the Heucherella ‘Sweet Tea.’

Here is an example of a container that uses texture, shape and foliage to create a beautiful container. I learned early on in my gardening journey that you don’t always need flowers.
