Here's a better shot of the container. It's in the midst of a sweep of camellias and azaleas, so it's a sea of glossy dark green in the summer. Morning sun only, once the trees leaf out.
Anyone have a brilliant suggestion for summer color? Last year I used Kimberly Queen Fern, Pink Double Impatien, Caladium and Creeping Jenny. The bowl is fairly shallow, so it won't accommodate things with large rootballs. I'm using apricots, oranges, and blues this summer.
Maybe I'll come up with a prize if the ideas are really good!
