Day 15 - Long and Lean, Begging to be Seen

This is a little quirky, but very simple. Yellow-twig dogwood, variegated lirope, and red pansies. These containers are at the Dwell condos at Southern Land Company's McEwen Development.
Folks often ask me, "What are the rules of container planting?" With there being scores of books on the subject, this is not an easy question to answer in few minutes. So usually I ask them what kind of container they plan on planting. With these tall, narrow planters, keep the planting simple, using no more than 3 different type plants. Also, with these multi-colored glazed planters, echo the colors in the pot with the colors in the plants.
