The following design idea has been supplied by Pamela Crawford
The rosy colors of the flowers are repeated in the the rug and throw pillow, creating a pleasing, coordinated look. The spiky textures of the coleus and the rosemary contrast well with the round shapes of the coleus and the variegated oregano. This arrangement merits a blue ribbon because of its ease of care.
Plants: Celosia, rosemary, 'Wizard Rose' coleus, variegated oregano
Light: Light shade to full sun
Season: Spring through fall for most warmer areas. This plant combination takes temperatures from about 70 degrees to the low 90's.
Care: Plant in a good quality potting mix, not potting soil, top soil, or garden soil. Fertilize on planting day with a slow-release mix. Trim any plants as needed to keep the arrangement looking tight. Water thoroughly if the plants show signs of wilt, or the soil feels dry when you push your fingertip into the potting mix.
Container: Container from Pottery Land. Measures 19"W x 10"H.
