I did a job for the friend who doesnt like perennials and gave me dozens of plants from the garden at their new house.
She does like containers with annuals in bright colors and coleus mixed.
Here are a few combos.

This big one is for her front door planters they are 40 inches each side

What a lucky friend she is Jo Ann. The 40" planters are going to be impressive.
Today my favorite is the sunny yellow mix. Might be because I am so tired of all the gray clouds and rain.

Sunny yellow is
Coleus SunStroke Beckwiths Gem
and Superbells Saffron.
I went to Big Lots looking for containers for sedums.No luck but checked out with 34 dollars worth of snacks and bean soup mix.
Spring isnt off to a good start.I will check Christmnas Tree Shoppe tomorrow.A half hour in a store wore me out.

I spent 1/2 hour yesterday walking through a second hand store and came home with $5.00 worth of container material. It is amazing what can be found in that shop.
