Day 121 - Winter's Not Over Yet

Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Filicoides' FERNSPRAY stands tall surrounded by Variegated False Holly. Osmanthus heterophyllus 'Variegatus', pansies, Euonymus fortunei 'Coloratus' purple wintercreeper, Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Golden Charm', and a gorgeous concrete planter.

So enjoy a few more winter containers!

Good ideas and very sophistic containers. I had never really thought about winter containers. I usually just hunker down and wait for the thaw.

Whoa, Nellie, just hang around me for a while and I'll get you winter container crazy! Thanks for stopping by the blog!

That Osmanthus is the cultivar 'Goshiki' - not 'Variegatus'. Beautiful container planting!

Thanks, Sarah! You are correct - the Variegatus has a more distinct white trim around the leaf and the goshiki looks more like splattered paint.
