Found this small iron settee planter last fall,at my local flea market, and finished the inside plants this week.
still need to put a row across the outside front' i can put 3 or 5 there and haven't decided what to use yet.
and i may even add a back cushion panel, .
my dirt holding material is a plastic mesh for outdoor furniture cushions.
The plants in back from L to R I is a clump of Hart and Sedum i had growing in a gal pot together,Jade Rose, & Red Rum, the center left is a small clump of Icicle, the green fuzzy left Front is Cebenese, center is supposed to be Cobweb "Buttons" and on front R is a small clump of Ashes of Roses" Hopefully will all fill in this summer

Looks like fun projects to show off the collection, Cliff. Very nice!

Took a look-see at your plant list and noticed along with lots of semps, lots of tillandsia. I saw this a few days ago and thought I would post it here for you for a " can contain plants" future project?

I love the look of that with the tillandsia! I wish I had somewhere with enough humidity to do that.

How did I miss this thread? Cliff, that's a great planter! Nice combination of plants. I'm looking forward to seeing it filled in too. Your sandbox looks like a fun project too. Are you going to plant right into the sandbox, or bury the pots?

Chris,
i will bury the pots but i have to change things a little.. Where i want to put it, there is a lot of runoff after a heavy rain so i think i will have to put in about 5" of pea gravel before i add the mulch i will use to finish filling. all the mulch lowes has right now is that goofy looking red. everone is selling but they do have a grey & black coming in this week. will see what they get over the weekend. have all the pots ready so i just need to fill it up. nodding nodding
