Fuchsia trees are really the perfect stunning center for summer shade containers. Complimented by a variety of ferns, coleus, and begonias you have a wonderful summer shade pot.
I am so ready for spring! We had a wonderful day at our favorite nursery and then planting a few spring containers. We used perennials because they are gorgeous, full of soft colors and texture, and will be able to handle this unpredictable weather. To give height we used forsythia. These large containers become their own individual gardens.
This past weekend I went to Hausermann’s Orchid Show. It is worth the visit out to Villa Park if you appreciate these amazing plants. I went to buy Orchids for customers and will probably have to go back next weekend to buy for my own home. The variety of orchids is what makes this show so exciting. You will see so many types you never find at a retail flower shop.
I am including a few of my favorites and I may have more pictures if I go out again next weekend. The show ends March 3rd. It’s a great activity for this weekend.
