I have a lot of containers. Here's a quick tour of the plantings.
Bacopa in the top three tiers of the flower tower and purple hyacinth bean plants in the bottom container.
Hanging baskets with petunias and vinca vine starts, a large container of a wave petunia and a container of purple fountain grass.
Two containers with Martha Washington geraniums.
The pansies looking kind of leggy and wind blown.
A container of various sweet potato vines. (I also took cuttings from these plants and have starts of sweet potato vine tucked in the shrub borders and flower beds--free plants).
Two buckets of red petunias.
Purple basil from my friend Melanie. I like the contrast with the wicker basket.
Purple fountain grass.
The water container with hornwort and snails. All my fish died. :-(
An asparagus fern by the house, caladiums in the rectangular container and a cacti in front.
A large ice plant to the right, geraniums in the oval container (the sweet peas I planted in there did not sprout), some vinca in the bucket, a small container of Jacob's coat and some rosemary I'm trying to start from seed.
Some geraniums in the small containers, nicotina seeds in the black container (starting to worry they're not coming) and a mix of flowers in the big tub including a sweet potato vine start, some dianthus, a Jacob's coat, some ice plant, purple elephant ears and a large allium stalk. I cut the allium stalk off after it bloomed in the front garden to give the bulb more energy, but I couldn't just toss it. I stuck it in here to enjoy for a while. You can only see the bottom of the sphere at the top of the photo.
Ice plant, ivy geranium, an amaryllis, some weak looking impatiens, some more geraniums (reds and whites) and in the trash cans---Jacob's coat, verbena and ice plant.
Hanging baskets with petunias, rose moss and calibrocha.
Baskets with asparagus fern, ivy geraniums and rose moss. These were suppose to hang from a shepperd's hook by the back patio, but ended up being too heavy for the hook.
I also have a mother-in-law's tongue, an aloe vera and the angel wing begonia in containers outside.
