Day 147 - Simple Saturday Solution

You have company coming for supper and you need a quick solution to your empty planters.
Easy care, easy planting, almost instant container beauty!
Green Panda Bamboo and True Blue Viola. Green Panda is an "evergreen" bamboo though it didn't prove to be as evergreen this winter in my zone 6 with the long stretches of deep freezes that we had this winter. This was an easy planting job and since it's been protected on the porch, it kept looking good throughout the winter.

This is beautiful. It would look fabulous on the steps by our front door.

I have always wanted to grow bamboo, so a pot is a great idea. Did it overwinter well? I'm zone 5b?

Thanks folks! Glad you like it. Susan, this past winter caused the bamboo I had in full exposure to loose it's evergreen status, though there is still plenty of life left in it. The one like in this picture stayed evergreen with just a little winter burn.
