Garden Description

Striking colors and textures are featured in this half-barrel (or equal size) container garden. The Green Jade poker plant adds a vertical note above the rich purple leaves of spiderwort and the sherbet hues of a double begonia. This garden will do well in part shade and consistently moist soil.
