Green and White Window Box Inspiration

Tuesday, April 22, 2014


I've saved all my planting for after spring break.  It's probably a good thing because it hasn't been consistently warm here.  Last weekend I planted new plants in our urns on the front porch.  I used caladium like you see in the image above.  I surrounded the caladium with angel wire vine which I've always loved, but never planted.  Go figure.  I'm really happy with how they turned out.  My plan was to stick with green and white in the window boxes on the front of our house and for them to co-ordinate with the urns.  So when I saw this image, I knew that this would be my combo.  Love it when that happens!



 For those of you who are curious:

1 - Aaron Caladium

2 - Holly Fern

3 - Key Lime Pie Heuchera

4 - White Nancy Lamium 

5 - Light Pink Periwinkle (I'll use white)

6 - Ivy

  3. Pretty! I don't have enough shade for most of those plants. I use all pink, white and blue plants. Glad to know I'm not the only one!

  4. Oh those are so pretty! We have window boxes in front, and I seem to forget about them (leading to a sad array of dead flowers). That looks beautiful

    1. I've often seen it as a houseplant during the winter. I love its delicate foliage. So far so good.

  8. Gorgeous, gorgeous. I love these combinations of textures. I recently planted the huechera and am really hoping it likes the spot I put it in. I'm assuming this is a part shade/shade planting?

    1. You are right Camille. This window box is for part shade. I'm getting started on mine today :).
