Shelley’s Container Designs
This Canadian’s use of foliage and texture is incredible
These photos are from frequent Garden Photo of the Day contributor Cherry Ong from Richmond, British Columbia. They’re not of her own containers, however, but are from container designer Shelley Brignall at Phoenix Perennials. Shelley’s designs truly inspire Cherry, and she wants to share some of Shelley’s most stunning container designs from the past couple of years.
Cherry says, “Don’t be intimidated by these being packed with so many interesting plants, for all you need is just a small sampling for your own home pot. What I love about these is the suggestion of all these wonderful combinations and textures, which one may otherwise miss in a huge nursery if they were not highlighted together.”
