A modern take on a container planting. The tall plant in the centre with the large leaves is a Philodendron (commonly used as a houseplant). Lime colored Coleus plants are used underneath the Philodendron (see detail below).

This is a fibreglass urn that I have at the front of my home. I purchased the little bird hoop at Walmart and painted it maroon to match the urn. I found the little birdhouse at Michael's.

    Hello, this is a stunning container arrangement. I'm hoping you could provide me a list of the plant names (and qty) you used to create this look. It is spectacular!! Thank you for your assistance.

      This was a container in a garden I visited and photographed. I think she used a Sweet Potato Vine (lime coloured trailing plant). The tall fan-shaped plant is probably a New Zealand Flax. There are a few white geraniums and several different varieties of Calibrachoa. Hope that helps!
