Your black and blue salvia is every so pretty. Mine is only beginning to bloom but not in a container. I love the combo.


That shot of the Emily McKenzie is gorgeous! Love the colors.


I always find Black & Blue Salvia to be a striking looking plant with those deep blue blooms. It looks great combined with the Lantana and that Croscosmia. :)


I love them favorite color is cobalt blue, but the crocosmia is fantastic....gail


I think it's a wonderful combination. I love your containers, they are always so very full and beautiful. I used succulents and Purple Heart in some of mine this year and am taking pictures and labeling what I did. I really knocked myself out doing differnet looking ones this year. But yours make mine look like babies. That's ok I'll get bigger as I learn huh?


Emily, striking both with the nice structure and the color!


I love the combinations you put together! Your containers always give me inspiration for mine. I'm getting excited to start planting some fall ones.
My 'Black and Blue' just started growing back in. I thought it had died last winter and all of a sudden it's growing.


Kathleen, I love everything about this container and would definitely not walked by it without commenting :)
I'm dying to try the Black and Blue Salvia. It's gorgeous!
I have Crocosmia blooming in a pot by itself. Couldn't decide where to put it but you've given me a good example.
I planted yellow Lantana with Scaevola, purple osteos and alternanthera. It makes a pretty combo.
