This dusky container design is quietly dramatic. It was designed by Peter Robideaux and his staff in Brookfield, Connecticut, to be an example of what could be achieved with the plants he sells in his nursery, Peter’s Home and Garden. They chose to stick with deep and blackish greens, which harmonize with the stunning urn, and played with contrast to make an impact. Take a look at the before and after photos to see what a difference water, fertilizer, and a couple of months makes.
