Day 22 - Using Fall Color To It's Full Advantage
Have you ever gone to the Iseli Nursery website? After you finish visiting with me here, mozy on over there and see why I lose all track of time in the catacombs of their website. I ordered a bunch of their one and three gallon Japanese Maples to use in our fall/winter containers. This Acer palmatum 'Ruslyn-in the Pink was a great contrast to this cream colored wall. I paired it with Heuchera Southern Comfort, Variegated False Holly Osmanthus heterophyllus 'Variegatus', Pinus thunbergii Japanese Black Pine, and Sedum Blue Spruce. Even after the leaves are gone the form and bark of the Japanese maple continue to be the "thriller" part of this container.
Did you notice the color echo of the Sedum Blue Spruce with the blotches in this planter?
