Day 4 - The Last Signs of Summer Time
October either has you restless to change out tired, spent plants in your container or rejuvenates your plants with the cooler temps and softer sunshine. Here's one early October planter that has its Autumn show down pat. Cordyline "Red Star", Begonia Bonfire, Hibiscus Presidents Red, and Sedum Dragon's Blood.
I also saw this planter at my friend, Reggie Ludwig's, house this morning while setting out pansies to plant. This is from two Black-eyed Susan vines (Thunbergia alata) that she planted with a trellis in her container. Last night's frost didn't seem to bother it a bit.
