Container Gardens

containers3One of my most anticipated chores in spring is the planning of the container gardens. Because of the deer problem, I use containers for annuals that would otherwise be eaten. One of my favorite plants for the last couple of years is Heliotrope ‘Fragrant Delight’ (center). It gives large clusters of very fragrant purple flowers. They last up to a month each. I paired with purple petunias of different shades and common marigold in a bright mellow yellow. Trailing in front is a new find, Sutera hybrid ‘Gold ‘n Pearls’. It is really doing a good job and it is about a foot long now.
