Looking through the photos from my trip Saturday morning to Cantigny Park, I found a few more to post. One thing to note: They use a lot of annuals at Cantigny, growing them themselves in their own greenhouse. For us, these “premium annuals” would be expensive if purchased at a nursery. But there’s no reason why we couldn’t use these ideas on a smaller scale, in containers, for instance, to keep the cost affordable.
A modern-looking array of a dracaena amidst Euphorbia ‘White Diamonds”. Euphorbias can be very drought resistant. This combination would work well in a container, especially if you’d like something easy and minimalist.
Love this vinca, called Vinca ‘Jams ‘n Jellies’ Blackberry. The color is a fabulous indigo, and could work with many color schemes: indigo, fuchsia and cream; indigo, violet and orange; indigo, yellow, and rose; indigo, pale blue, and white.
Well, I actually have more photos, but think I’ll wait until some horribly freezing day in January to post them, when we will really appreciate seeing something green and alive. Take care.
