Westerose Nursery & Greenhouse

Plants and planting tips to help you create this planter:

  • Bracteantha Sundaze Golden Beauty
  • Dracena
  • Verbena Babylon Light Blue
  • Orange Marigolds
  • Panolas

Panolas are a cross between a pansy and a viola. Ball Seed Co. grows many gorgeous varieties. Bracteantha is a kind of strawflower. Despite the dry straw-like texture of the blooms, this plant likes to be kept evenly moist. Use a professional soilless potting mix such as ProMix and make sure your containers always have holes in the bottom for drainage. This 24 inch plastic rectangular planter is suited to full sun. Plastic or resin pots will not dry out as quickly as clay or wooden pots. Water when top inch of soil is dry; deadhead spent blooms; fertilize.
