I decided to use the Cordyline plant as the "thriller" in this container. (My original thought was to use it as a filler with some Tropicana's, but it's too big), so it will be the star.
Here is the recipe:
1 large Cordyline - $7.99--the Thriller
1 Proven Winners Colorblaze 'Sedona' - $5.00 -- filler
3 purple kale - roughly .40 each - $1.20 total - spillers - unconventional, I know
1 Purple Heart - $1.88 - spiller
1 Gerbera Daisy (will have orange/red flowers) - free from one of my clients at work - roughly $5 to buy - filler
2 Feathery Coleus - $1.88 each - total $3.76 - fillers
3 blue Salvia - .40 each - total of $1.20
Here is some Kale and one of the feathery coleus:
I added a few blue Salvia near the orangey/purpley coleus 'Sedona'
I put my gifted Gerbera daisy right in the front, which completed this container:
I am excited about this one. Don't I always say that? LOL. But I do love the color of the container, it's embossed ferns (which is why I don't want spillers covering it), and the subdued colors of the plants. I am thinking this guy may be the one I choose to sit on my new front porch. Although, tomorrow's container recipe is another one I am all giddy over! As I said, I love them all! :)
