Our Front Porch Containers: A Different Approach This Spring

March 27, 2016

We decided not to plant spring flowers in our front porch containers this year because the 4 small shrubs we planted last fall still look pretty darn good.  We are interested to see how they grow this year now that the weather is warming up.  We just gave them a spring feeding of Osmocote Plant Food. I will show you how these containers look this summer.

We planted an Emerald Green Arborvitae ‘Smaragd’ in the center (Zone 4 to 8) surrounded by a Wintercreeper ‘Moonshadow’ (Zone 4 to 9), a Golden Threadleaf False Cypress ‘Filifera Aurea’ (Zone 4 to 8), and a Weeping Loropetalum ‘Purple Pixie’ (Zone 7 to 10) Click photo to enlarge
