This container grouping in Laura Crockett’s garden is successful because of several different factors. The screen behind the pots makes the plantings stand out beautifully, making the plantings stand out and shine much more than a foliar back drop would. The rebar spirals add some height and interest, but the blue sphere reflected in a shiny metal pot at the base of this vignette is the most compelling element. It’s doubtful either would be as effective without the other.
