|Big pot on the back terrace|
Anyway, I got this pot around the first of August, and since I had to fill it quickly, I went to Valley Nursery, a very good nursery in Poulsbo. Luckily, they had a good selection of summer bedding plants and tropicals which were on sale at 50% off. So what you see is the result of cramming some of those plants into this pot and letting them grow for less than 2 months now. I think it did pretty well, if I do say so myself.
At the top of the heap are three black colocasias, which I love. The yellow foliage is a salvia, there are some black sweet potato vines and there are some begonias.
