All Black Container Recipe

by Fern on March 29, 2009

in Container Combos

As promised, below you’ll find a container recipe featuring black plants

This pot includes:

  1. ‘Edge of Night’ Calla Lily
  2. ‘Black Magic’ Bachelor’s Button
  3. ‘Blackie’ Sweet Potato Vine

I’ve never seen black Bachelor’s Buttons in a nursery, so you might consider growing them from seed. Botanical Interests has Black Magic seeds.

To round out the black theme, you’ve gotta use a black pot. If you can’t find one you like, try spray painting one black. A client I worked with last week had some plants in plastic pots that she wanted to keep, so I just spray painted the pots black so they’d look good with the new pots. The paint definitely upgraded the plastic and made them look much nicer than they really were.
