This design can fit to any planter size. I used a 16- inch diameter planter the first time around and increased the size to a 20-inch planter for this season. It is important to use a good lightweight potting mix meant for containers and be sure to have good drainage in the bottom. For a central focal point I used a wispy Asparagus Fern. Around the fern is an alternating pattern of five potato vines, three purple and two green. In between the fern and potato vines are pockets of various types of coleus.
I liked the combination so much last year that I used the same mix again only switched up the types of coleus for even more color!
This combination will add color and interest to a shady spot under an overhang and will last all summer long. It will be sure to receive lots of attention!
