This day we’re visiting with Mary Danzis, who’s sharing a ingenious container record from her backyard thru the seasons.
By stacking a series of terra-cotta pots, Mary has made a enormous backyard accent. Right here, for the chilly climate, it is adorned with lower branches from heaps of evergreens, pine cones, apples, and the distinctive inexperienced fruit of the osage orange tree (Maclura pomifera, Zones 4–9).
A varied purchase on the chilly climate record, but again mixing branches, fruit, and pine cones.
At the prime of the pot tower, a shrimp bird hangs out in a nest, and kumquats assert color to the lower branches.
In the summer season, the pot tower is reworked with a residing record. Lamium (Lamium maculatum, Zones 4–8) brings silvery foliage at the underside, while Calebrachoa (annual) bloom in heaps of colors at the prime.
The rising crops of the summer season pot tower entirely veil the enchancment below them, growing a enormous vertical backyard accent.
Right here’s every other chilly climate record of lower branches.
In autumn, ornamental gourds and berries mix with pansies (Viola × wittrockiana, chilly-season annual) in warmth, fall-acceptable colors.
