I absolutely LOVE it, even though those aren't "my" colors! The sparse flowers left on the Petunia/Calibrachoa are incidental, extraneous, it's all about the colorful foliage! Imagine how much less impact a pot of nothing but this Pet/Cal (with so few blooms) would have right now. These pots I'm sure looked great from the first day, no waiting for blooms, and are good to go until frost.

Is the baby redbud tree in the pot or behind it? Can't tell...

Tiffany...you have a god eye spotting the redbud tree. I think the lady that owns the home planted one called Forrest Pansy which grew for a few years and then died. The small tree came up from the root stock. The calibrachoa isn't contributing anything. It may have been more colorful earlier in the season but looks like the tobacco bud worms got the best of it. Thanks for your comment.

Oh, I think the Cal's contribution is mighty, the medium green trailing foliage. Upon close inspection most plants have issues but for viewing a little farther back, such as these pics, they are perfect, IMVHO. I love redbud trees, the dangly heart-shaped leaves, kinda zigzag stems, fantastic! The flowers aren't bad either, of course. Thanks, Paul!
