This container came from this Flicker account and uses just two flowers.
This one came from the same Flicker account is gorgeous with just the Cordyline alone:
I am thinking more along the lines of it being a nice filler for one of my Tropicanna planters--hopefully in a nice new container that I plan to buy to put on the new front deck (once it's built).
I also bought some coleus 'Sedona'. I think its purple center will be wonderful planted in the same container as the Cordyline.
Right now all of my purchases are sitting in the garage awaiting warmer weather. I am hoping that I can get my containers planted next week.
