Here's one of two containers I designed for my talk last night at Lowes. It was given away as a door prize. I sure wish I could have brought it home. The focal point, of course, is the stargazer lily with its magnificent scent, but there is an attractive coleus behind it to take the star role once the lily passes its peak. Other plants (clockwise) are trailing gray-green sedum, white Catharanthus commonly called Vinca in the midwest, siskiyou pink, and then on the back is the coleus and bright pink "vinca" the color of the dots in the lily. The container is a glazed ceramic jardiniere.
