After Labor Day when the chrysanthemums and kale plants flood the markets, it’s time to take stock of summer plantings. These can provide inspiration for next year’s plantings. At The Barns, it was red, red, red with Begonias, Lantana, and Coleus.
With the relatively cool weather this summer, New York was aglow with the many shades of Coleus. In these window boxes the Coleus is complimented by a dark Impomea.
Caladiums, Coleus and Ivy decorate the city’s streets.
In the village of Salisbury CT, a pair of these towering morning glories welcome shoppers to the grocery store. Sprays of Verbena bonariensis,
Large pots such as this line the sidewalks. I particularly love these with the dusty miller, distinctive striped petunia, coleus, foxtail grass and Bacopa.
Wall hangings change the look just slightly with white Angelona, sweet alyssum, dark Impomea, and Bacopa, What a lucky village!!
I love the color scheme in this planter but not its design. The gorgeous soft orange Coleus, almost matching zinnias, tall dark New Zealand Flax, and Oxalis at the bottom make an arresting combination.
At Bunny Williams’ garden, this stately urn is full of textural plants in many shades of green, providing a cool respite on the garden path.
In Memphis, this barrel planter in its iron holder is filled with Begonias and Fuschias.
More Begonias in beautiful shades with Bacopa trail over a magnificent green pot, one of a pair, on a porch in East Hampton. What were your pots like this year?
