    beautiful! what is the orange flower on the 3rd picture?

  3. Bernie Says:

    I loved all the combinations …. but the little orange flower against the coleus really caught my eye!

  4. Bruce Says:

    GREAT work! I love Strobilanthes dyerianus as well. I have one in an arragement of terra cotta pots and the other two I have in galvanized containers to play off the whole metalic feel of it.
    Nicotianas also do it for me this year! I think next year all I am going to grow in my pots (now we know this won’t come true) will be Nicotiana.

    I really do need to come and chat with you one day.

      Thanks Bruce! I would love to visit with you one day. I think I have nursery work in my blood! I can’t remember which Nicotiana that was, I recall it being a tender perennial here in these parts though. I love using both the Strobilanthes and Nictotiana in pots. They both have such wonderful personalities and make it easy to combine with a wide variety of planting styles.
      Let’s stay in touch!

  5. One of my fav color combos! Great examples, I’m drooling!

    Wow. Stunning pictures! Is that a tall purple Nicotania in the last picture or something else?
