    flower pot tiered.JPG I've not done much with containers other then planting sunny or shady plants in a hanging pot. Once it did 4 pots of impatiens in a crooked pot tower. This is my first attempt at a mixed planting in years and years. I kind of like the result -- planned with lots of butterfly and hummer interest.

    Very nice, Red. Don't you just love that white filler? I can't remember the name of it, but I read that it is related to poinsettias. Same white milky sap.

    Isn't it addicting picking out and combining plants for containers? I like how the green pops next to your red containers. Nicely done!
    What's the plant in the second level with the peachy green little leaves?

    @so lucky , that white frothy plant is Diamond Frost euphorbia.

    Those cute little plants are shamrocks called "Oxalis" -- Molten Lava. There are three of them around the second level pot.
