My Container Cottage Garden Pics

crackingtheconcrete(7a)June 22, 2011

Here are some pics of my "Cottage Garden" grown mostly in grouped containers. :)

A Kniphofia that thrives despite being in Partial shade. I would love to see what it would do in full sun. Against allium giganteum.

Echinacea "Hot Papaya" growing in a raised bed on concrete. I have it surrounded by daylilies and scattered cosmos.

Blue Lace Delphinium against a Hydgrangea

A pink rainlily gifted to me in an exchange blooming against a Strawberry pot of sedum and ice plant and near a 16 Candles Verbascum

Peruvian Daffodil harrisiana

and unfurling caladiums.

Well now you have done a great job of cottage gardening. The Delphinium is especially beautiful.
