Everything is going to pot...well actually just some plants.

I thought I would share some pictures of my potted plants. In the past, I have just put one type of plant in a pot to bring outdoor color. This year I was inspired by some pages from "Better Homes & Gardens" to create multi-layered potscapes. Here are some of my efforts.

Sweet Potato Vine, Crazy Curly Grass..(don't know the real name), Lantana, pot to right is Mexican Heather

Tall Spike Grass with Pink Petunias


  1. What is the name of the plant at the top of the page (1st picture) that has purple-ish leaves?

  2. Hi Molley,

    The common name for this plant is "purple heart". The scientific name is Setcreasea pallida. I purchased my purple heart last year at Lowes. It is supper low maintenance (just keep it watered) and it is a really nice trailing plant for containers.

    thanks for reading!
