This, my second year with full sun planters…and I still don’t have it quite right. The placement is good, but the plants are not WOW.
The grasses were a bit disappointing; it was a new variety, and I’ll go back to my tried and true “Vertigo” for the grass pots. The roses were an attempt at a low maintenance, full season bloomer; only the “Never Alone” rose has been doing a good job. The “Morden Sunrise” has been a bit of a disaster, with black spot from the get-go, and not a big show of flowers.
Next year? Thinking grasses alone in two pots, and geraniums and ivy in the other two…but what about the boxwood? Does he get the go-ahead for next year, too?
