Easy-care Container

The cascading, frothy-white blooms of Nemesia ‘Sunsatia® Coconut’ (1) flower profusely from spring to fall, backed by upright, cheerful yellow stems of Argyranthemum ‘Butterfly’ (2). Euphorbia ‘Etanthia’ (3) adds a contrasting note with its burgundy foliage, and Hedera ‘Midas Touch’ (4) weaves its gold-splashed leaves through the planting. At the back of the container, Phalaris ‘Strawberries & Cream’ (5) adds spiky texture.

Recycle the spurge, ivy and ribbon grass (zones 4 and up) into next year’s container; the grass has a tendency to become aggressive, so divide it in spring.
