Container gardening

We don’t have much shade around the perimeter of our house requiring shade tolerant plants which in a way is too bad since I love impatiens and how they grow to look like a big floral bush. We do, however, have a front porch that is 1/2 shaded allowing me to dabble in a few sun-haters. I’ve mixed it up each of the 3 summers that we’ve lived here and am really enjoying this year’s choices. I have chartreuse sweet potato vine, dragon leaf begonia, Kong Coleus, coleus and this purple leafed non-flowering plant that compliments the other colors so well.

I’m looking forward to seeing how it will all look come August!
