I love this trio of planters! In that front urn is sweet potato vine ... one of my very favorite "spillers" to use in a planter! It spreads so well and quickly, and I love the lime green pop of color.
Here is sweet potato vine with vivid pinks and purples. Gorgeous.
The pretty flower in the middle of this natural area is foxglove. These plants are dramatic, tall, and one of my very favorite blooming flowers.
Check out this pretty urn containing rosemary and mint. These are two of my favorite herbs to grow. Mint spreads like wildfire, though, and is best planted in a container of some sort. I've made some fun simple syrups to add to cocktails using both of these herbs.
I'm starting to layer my planters with more and more plants. Look at this lovely one above with five different plants in one planter. The pink and green elephant ear leaves are called caladium and they are some of my favorite to grow from bulbs.
Charlotte has lots of pretty wisteria in bloom right now. My mother begged me not to plant some at our home -- while it is gorgeous, she warned me that it will take over like kudzu. It does smell great, though, and I snipped some from the church parking lot the other day to put in a vase in our kitchen!
Happy Earth Day, and enjoy the outdoors this afternoon!
