I’ve been trying to come up with something unique & interesting to put in pots to flank the front door. Our porch is HUGE and unless there are a few pots of plants it looks like a bowling alley. This year, I was considering purchasing a few boxwoods clipped into spheres for this spot. When I was at Buchwalter Greenhouse on Monday with my mom I spotted these aloe ‘Hedgehog’ and knew they’d be perfect.
Our front porch is hot, hot, hot since it gets the afternoon sun. I’d love to do ferns, but they just can’t take the heat. These lovely aloes should thrive up there in those conditions.
These are certainly unique, I’m guess most of my neighbors are going to have petunias and other plants on their front port. Now I just need to find something unique that can take the heat for my hanging baskets.
What’s your favorite front porch plant? Do you have a tough spot in the garden you have trouble finding the perfect plant for?Filed under Around the Garden | Comments (14)
