I love Summer! All of the flowers are showing their beautiful faces, the birds are chirping, and its time to create Summer pots!
There are so many different flowering options during the Summer! Look up your local nursery, go, and have fun! The color combinations are endless!
Below I will show you how to bring color, fun, and elegance to your Summer pots!
First I placed a Kimberly Queen fern. This will give me a great centerpiece to work off of. Next I added a Croton for texture and interesting color. Remember to look for their pretty sides, and also what direction your pots will be facing. For example, if you are creating front door pots you will want all of their pretty faces to be facing outward.
Next comes the Asparagus Ferns. I love these little babies cause they will continue to grow and spill out the sides.
I then started adding some trailers. I chose Sweet Potato Vines because they fill in so fast. What is nice about these is that you can trim them to any trailing length you want.
Torenia and Trailing Impatiens are some of my favorites too! You can find these at nearly any nursery. They will continue to bloom, grow, and trail over your pots all Summer long until the first frost.
Lastly I chose the decorative "Rex" Begonias. I absolutely adore how beautiful and unique the leaves are. They bring such a different color and texture to any pot. Now remember these will not bloom like the waxy leave Begonias, but I love them just the same!
Summer time is one of my favorite seasons to plant, the greenery and color combinations are literally endless. Like I always say, never be afraid to experiment with different combinations of plants! Always be conscious of your light exposure and your planting zone...and you'll do great! You can't go wrong when bringing organic beauty to your home!
I love it...I hope you love it too!
