Front Porch Shade Container - July 2021
I don't think I've posted photos of our front porch container in the past here on the blog. We've done a mix over the years of DIY and even one year Nat had a pro fill our container. This year, I went to the big box nursery and picked out some shade-loving plants to use including a big, dramatic fern on the left. Along with some coleus, a purple sweet potato vine and (although they're hard to see, they're there) a few peach-colored Rex Begonias.
Here's a look at the flowers before we planted them below. The watermelon-striped plant and the Rex Begonias - which were the stunners pre-planting that you see below have been somewhat swallowed-up by everything else.
