“Ornamental peppers, black mondo grass, dusty miller, coral bells, Swiss chard, ornamental millet, carex, preserved oak leaves with cattails all add textural complements to seasonal decor. Gourds bring the season up to Thanksgiving.”


“Seems like this season we have to bring our own sunshine! Add a burst of brightness to your life with some fall color in your containers. Kale, ornamental grasses, mums, pansies and creeping Jenny are great additions that can handle the frosty fall temps! Pumpkins, harvest corn and bittersweet are all gorgeous autumnal additions that can make your containers extra festive. These plants will carry your garden through until Thanksgiving!”
