Day 118 - This Will Get You Wanting Moore and Moore

One of my favorite nurseries to visit here in Middle Tennessee is Moore and Moore West in southwest Nashville. I loved this container that I saw there because it's perfect for summer shade but also perfect for bringing indoors for the winter. Tall thick blades of cordyline contrast beautifully with the fine foliage of maidenhair fern and the round ruffles of tuberous begonias and wax begonias. The few little trails of ivy soften the edges under the heavy begonia leaves. Look at all the color and interest you get with just foliage and a tiny bit of flowering! This gives a whole new aspect to year round containers.
