Patio Corner Container - Petunias, Marigolds and Salvia - June 2021
Since our first (and only) visit to Luxembourg Gardens in Paris a few Summers back, I've planted this large(r) corner container with the same color combination that we first saw there and have used (mostly) the same trio of plants: Red Petunias. Yellow Marigolds. Purple Salvia.
Last year, I used the same red petunias. But, used yellow Zinnias and a perennial, more woody Salvia. Here's a look at a different container that I planted with the remnants of the wooden corner box.
This year, I used this dark purple Vista Salvia and a yellow Marigold and even tucked in an Elephant Ear bulb into the corner. Thus far, the elephant ear hasn't put up any growth but, it might lend a nice tropical vibe to the corner of this container box.
You will also note that in the photo above, the container is still naked lumber - and hasn't been stained just yet. That's #4 on my 2021 to-do list that hasn't been done just yet.
