Loving the Silvery Greens!

Lately, I’ve been paying attention to plants and flowers used in window boxes wherever I go (like the one pictured here). Different plants that I like, or things that look nice planted together, color schemes, etc. I like the white, green and silvery greens in this planting. In the end we chose…

Light purple petunias, mint, french lavender (ooooh, this is the silvery green addition we added!) and a tall pretty plant with tiny darker purple flowers, called Archangel.

They’ve only been planted a week and are getting stronger, taller and fuller already! The 3′ flower box (it’s really wrought iron with a coconut coir liner) holds an amazing amount of dirt and plants. I really didn’t think we’d get them all to fit, but we did, and it’s spectacular! It makes me smile every time I see it. Now we can see it when we walk in the room, since it’s growing like crazy and is now in full view. Woohoo! Keep your eye out for plants that you enjoy, color schemes that you like and that work with your house. Ours is darker brick, so I thought lighter colors would stand out a bit more, except the dark purple of Archangel. It’s stunning!
