Create the Perfect 4th of July Planter!

As the summer season comes barreling in, so does the most Patriotic time of the year. The Fourth of July brings about many friendly gatherings and cookouts which give us plant lovers a great excuse to spruce up our planting arrangements. Creating a decorative Patio Pot for the summer is a great way to go. It can function as the table center piece and easily move to continue to add color to your patio or deck. Mixing in red, white and blue flowers will brighten up containers and wow your guests with a patriotic punch of color.

My Favorite Perennial – Becky Shasta Daisy

Everyone wants color in their perennial gardens. Is white a color? Not really, unless you are talking my favorite perennial. All of the other colorful flowers in my perennial borders seem even more vibrant when they play off this very special beauty.

I’m referring, of course, to the sturdiest, most beautiful, clean white Becky Shasta Daisy. The four inch diameter flowers of brilliant white petals surrounding a big yellow eye are real show-stoppers.
