Our Favorite Plants for Cool-Season Combos
It's time to add some color to your entryway!
Need to add some color to existing porch pots? Or maybe replant an entire pot to hold you over till early summer? The following plants are our favorite items for cool-season interest that can handle frosts and chilly nights:
GRASSES AND EUPHORBIA FOR THRILL
For height, are favorite options are grasses (we have a wide variety, but especially like Red Rooster Sedge, and the grass-like Variegated Golden Sweetflag), or Euphorbia (we currently have Ascot Rainbow, and will soon restock with a dark-leafed variety also).
FOLIAGE FOR FILL
For colorful foliage fillers, we love semi-evergreen ferns such as Autumn Fern, and semi-evergreen heucheras, such as Forever Red.
PANSIES AND VIOLAS FOR COLOR
For blooms, we tend to go with the safe and lovely option of violas or pansies - we have so many gorgeous varieties this year!
SEDUM AND MORE FOR SPILL
For trailing options around edges of combo, we like Golden Moneywort, Wire Vine, colorful trailing sedum such as Angelina or Red Carpet, or Vinca Ralph Shugert (which also blooms in spring).
