Summer Garden Container Idea from a Restaurant Planting

Gardeners are in the habit of finding planting ideas from public places. Restaurants are especially replete with ideas. Unfortunately, plants at restaurants are not usually labeled, which will require a bit of research to find the cultivar names.

The container mix below has several petunia varieties, a red verbena, and a Dracaena (commonly called a spike) planted into an urn-type pot. It makes a lovely summer garden.

That’s AmorĂ© Italian Cafe in Greenfield, Wisconsin, has a wonderful container garden, no less the yummy food you will find through its front doors. (Photo credit Chris Eirschele)
