Foliage Planter

Westerose Nursery & Greenhouse

Plants and planting tips to help you create this container garden:

  • Coleus Kingswood Torch, Sedona and Pineapple
  • Ipomoea Lime, Blackie and Sweet Caroline
  • Millet Purple Baron
  • Lotus Vine
  • German Ivy
  • Vinca Vine
  • Centradenia Vine

This is an ideal low-maintenance combination for people with a partial sun location and no time for deadheading.  Millet Purple Baron is a stunning centrepiece suited to many large container designs.  The Coleus and Ipomoeas are available in a huge variety of colours and textures.  They must be protected from frost and cold nights below 5oC. Pinch the tips of the coleus to keep it bushy and feel free to trim some length off the vines whenever you want them to be shorter and bushier. Water when the top inch of soil is dry and fertilize.
