Winter Planters

As with spring and summer planters, the rule of thumb for visual appeal is still "TFP" (a Thriller, some Filler
and some Spillers). We have a variety of offerings in each of these groups which will allow you mix and match
plants, textures and colors to create exactly the look and feel you want.


The planter to the left
has Ozmanthus and a
Nandina for height with
Euphorbia 'Blackbird' and
Violas serving as fillers with
Creeping Jenny as the spiller.


This planter combines
Ogon (Sweet Flag) as the thriller with Euphorbia, a winter fern and Blood Sorrel as fillers with Trailing Pansies (spiller).



 


Just four varieties
of plants create
this combination:
Ephorbia in the center,
two types of Sedum and
two different Coral Bells
(Heuchera) with similar
coloration.

 


The thriller is Juncus inflexus which will keep its
grey blue color all winter with Pansies, Euphorbia and Heuchera as the fillers and Creeping Jenny as the spiller.
