Create the perfect frame for a small seating area

1. ‘Sedona’ coleus (Solenostemon scutellarioides ‘Sedona’, Zone 11)2. ‘Aureo LG’ iresine (Iresine herbstii ‘Aureo LG’, annual)3. Callie™ White calibrachoa (Calibrachoa Callie™ White, annual)4. Tropicanna® canna (Canna indica ‘Phasion’, Zones 8–11)5. King Tut® papyrus (Cyperus papyrus King Tut®, Zones 10–11)

Two urns do a nice job of framing this intimate seating area while honoring the larger scale of the surrounding landscape. Foliage plants attract attention, with the calibrachoa offering some flowers to complete the mix. The smaller potted tabletop planter works with the scale of the bistro set, while also complementing the stone-wall backdrop.
