Lest you think Lynn Felici-Gallant only designs window boxes (see yesterday's post), check out this simple, gorgeous container she designed with just ‘Belle Blanche’ datura (Datura metel ‘Belle Blanche’, Zone 11) and tall verbena (Verbena bonariensis, Zones 7-11). Both plants are easy to grow and super-tough, perfect for a busy sidewalk. And the purple blooms of the tall verbena echo the hints of purple in the white datura blooms.
