Blue and White Shade Container Garden

Shade Project
Project time: 20 Minutes
Season: Spring/Summer 

The color palette of the plants was inspired by the blue and white painted ceramic container. The blue and white tones are echoed with blue and white Torenia (Wishbone flower) and white Caladiums. Foxtail fern provides a soft texture.

Fill the container 2/3 full of potting soil, remove the plants from their pots and arrange them in the soil. Dig them into place and fill around the root balls with additional potting soil. Water in well.
