Gone, But Not Forgotten, After the First Hard Frost

The flower box at the front of my house:  Coleus 'Dark Heart', Begonia 'Summerwings Deep Red', Fuchsia magellanica 'Aurea', Begonia luxurians, Begonia 'Marmaduke' and Begonia repens.

The pot/planter combination at my office: Coleus 'Dark Heart', Senecio petasitis, Begonia 'Summerwings Deep Red',  Begonia repens, Pteris cretica 'Albo-lineata' and Fuchsia magellanica 'Aurea',


  1. Lovely displays which I may try to emulate next year.

  2. I just returned from the Perennial Plant Conference at Swarthmore College. Paul Zammit, the Director of Horticulture at the Toronto Botanical Garden, spoke on Container Gardening. And I got to see endless examples of innovative pots and planters at Swarthmore's campus and at Chanticleer, in Wayne, PA. I, too, have some great new ideas to emulate myself.
