While taking a walk around the Queen Village Neighborhood of Philadelphia I spotted this super gorgeous windowbox jam packed with interesting foliage plants perfect for fall. Black Mondo Grass and ornamental cabbages? Yes, please!

If you want to recreate this look, here’s a container plan and plant list:

  1. Black Mondo Grass
  2. Fern
  3. Ornamental cabbage
  4. Wire vine

You may have to really squeeze the plants in, but the strappy leaves of the ferns and mondo grass look best when they comingle with nearby plants. I’ve found that it’s easiest to start from back to front, putting in the larger plants first, and then following with smaller plants.

Love this post! Thanks for sharing. I’m always confused when it comes to picking out compatible container plants. I love the diagram of the box with directions and the final real results.

Such a beauty! That’s one of the reasons I enjoy strolling on not so cold afternoons. Lots of pleasantries to see.

Thanks for sharing!
