Summer (July, Aug, Sept)

Ah Summer – the showiest of all seasons! Plants in the summer months truly thrive and will put on a spectacular show for 3 to 4 months at your location. We have many styles available, including drought-tolerant plants for low-maintenance needs.


We select plants which are easy and have shown to perform well in container gardens.


Above is an example of a summer container garden that grew well into fall with a spiller Sweet Potato Vine (Ipomoea) and two types of Elephant Ears (Colocasia) along with blue bloomers requested by the client (Agastache and Salvia). These plants are top performers and will last until frost arrives in the fall.


In this photo of a container garden at a business store front, the impressive white blooms on the dripping down Dipladenia (often compared to Mandevillas) grace the darker toned colors of the elephant ears towering above them. The Dipladenias are very long lasting plants and thrive in the heat of summer. This is just one example of the size of a typical pot with various mix of plants – we have many more.


If desired, flags and decor may be added to honor special holidays, such as the 4th of July. In this photo below, various cacti and succulents were used which are very low-maintenance and can take the heat. And festive decor added! Everyone loved this!


While we enjoy showy large plants to make an impression, many styles are available in our container gardens.


Please browse our various links and pages to see more. Summer is a time for color and impact – and the choices are endless!

Thank you,

Cathy Testa
