Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day I thought I'd share a few of my mixed containers now that they are starting to fill in nicely. I have about 20 large planters going, but will share a sampling of just three. (If you are viewing this on my blog at washingtongardener.blogspot.com, you can click on any of the photos to look at them in detail at full-size.
At top, Petunia Debonair Black Cherry with Fuseables Chocolate Symphony Coleus (that is one coleus bright green and burgundy edged with green). In the middle of it is an elephant ear that I cannot recall if I received for trial or got at a plant swap this spring.
At middle, Petunia Shock Wave Rose Improved with Angelonia Serenita Lavender Pink. In the middleof it is a yellow Brugmansia that I got a plant swap this spring.
At bottom, Colorblaze Marooned Coleus with Superbells Lemon Slice Calibrochoa peaking out below it. There are two other plants in this container, but the coleus has "proven" to be a container hog.
So what is blooming in your garden today?
