A Pretty Container Idea with Sea Lavender and Lotus

Plant Combinations, Spring Borders, Summer Borders, Fall Borders, Winter Borders


An eye-catching idea for your summer containers: grow the intense purple flower clusters of Limonium perezii (Sea Lavender) in combination with the glowing and exotic-looking, trailing Lotus berthelotii (Parrot's Beak). Interplant the evergreen rosettes of Echeveria agavoides 'Lipstick' with their fleshy, sharp-pointed, bright green leaves adorned with vibrant crimson margins. 

All plants are evergreen, drought-tolerant and deer resistant. A garden design idea by Debra Lee Baldwin, garden photojournalist and author.
