A good friend of mine built me this planter out of scrap wood. I then added the flat rocks and marbles to decorate it. Now I need some suggestions for what kind of plant to put in it. Suggestions please.

Colleen, what are the measurements on the planter? It's hard to tell from a photo.

Oh, sorry, the planter is about 20" tall & about 12" around. I took such a close-up of it to show the detail of the stone & flat marbles decorating it.

I used to have a planter that was similar in measurements. I put a prostrate Rosemary in it. It grew up tall and tumbled down the sides and looked very nice when it was blooming. I tried to look up the needed zones, but am not finding them in the database. I'm not sure if it would make it during Edgewood winters. Do you see any of it growing around your area?

No I haven't seen any rosemary around my area. I live in a very dual area. As for surving my winter, it wouldn't be a problem as I could always bring it inside. Thank you for the suggestion. Hmm, now where would I find some?

If you shop in Albuquerque or Santa Fe, any of the nurseries should carry it, or could order it for you. Be sure to get the prostrate variety. The others grow straight up and don't spill over.

OK, thank you for the info and the tip about which kind to get. I do shop in Albuquerque and am sure I will find some.
