Continuing on in the Charleston theme (there seems to be no end to the great garden ideas from my tour there several years ago), here’s a photo of the front entryway to a stately Charleston home. There isn’t much room for a lush planting, so this gardener looked up. In addition to the pots on the stair treads, they’ve trained mandevilla vines to scramble along the handrails. It softens the imposing columns and lends some southern charm. Not that this house needs any help!
